    Small lump on breast

    Hi, I'm 19 and a couple months or some weeks ago had noticed a small lump on my breast. I didn't really think it would be an issue but since it still hasn't gone I continued to try and search through people's similar questions but couldn't find any similar symptoms. It's in my left breast and slightly below the areola, it's the size of a very small pea but still noticeable, this is due to it being right below the skin. I can feel around it but it doesn't move (since....

    Metastatic breast cancer

    I have a question that I fear only my mother's doctor could answer but I wanted to see what other opinions might be out there. My mother's breast cancer has spread to her pelvic bone and she is currently on chemo in pill form, 2600 mg. per day. I want to put her on cannabis oil. Can she safely take this cannabis oil while still on chemo?

    Liver Tumors, Irregular Liver Enzymes, Anemia and High Ferritin

    I have two masses in my liver (discovered from an ultrasound). My total protein in my blood was 7.9g/dl (6.3-7.7g/dl normal), ALT was 156 U/L (0-50U/L), AST was normal at 29 U/L, ferritin was 967 ng/ml (20-250 ng/ml), iron was normal and so was transferrin saturation. WBC was 3.4 Thou/ul (4.2-9.1), RBC was 3.9 mil/ul (4.6-6.1), hemoglobin was 12.0 g/dl (13.7-17.5), and hematocrit was 34% (40-51%). Does this make sense to anyone and what are some possible causes? I do not have a follow up appointment....

    Experiencing strange sensations, kind of excited if this is my ticket out, Background Smoking since 2004. Inhaled 60 cartons in my lifetime, but now I quit. Having a burning feeling and a toxic sensitivity inside my chest. Feeling a dash of fatigue and my blood feels hot. What happens when I usually stop smoking I start sneezing, but this time the sneezing wouldn't stop. And then my lung capacity decreased rapidly. Anyone recognize this as early stage cancer or just normal beef jerky lungs.
