    Cervical cancer--round two

    Hello. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2012 and underwent extensive radiation and mild chemotherapy then. This April, I received the diagnosis of the return, with considerable involvement. Surgery is not an option, according to my oncologist, chemo is my only hope. Obviously , during and after cancer treatment one is not one's normal self. I learned to adapt to the permanent changes left by the 2012 treatment. But I am struggling this time. I am far sicker, and my life has been upended....

    New strange mole, should I be concerned?

    Lately the sun has been out and has been lovely. I have been out in it where I usually never go out. Anyway, I have a mole (or what I believe is a mole) appear just under my right arm in the pit area. I felt this when I woke up this morning and though "what the hell". I'm not picking it off because it is sensitive as a mole would be if you try rip it off but it looks strange so I am hoping I can get a response on webMD before taking it further with the hospital. See the image I uploaded....

    Malignant kidney tumor

    I was very recently diagnosed with a malignant kidney tumor. The doctor doesn't think it has metastasized I'm waiting for surgery to be scheduled, however, I've been having night chills and fever. My temperature at it's peak is about 103 degrees. And my energy level is 0. Is the lack of energy because I'm losing protein from my kidney or are all the symptoms from the cancer?

    Mouth Cancer?

    About 2 months ago in the very back corner of my mouth i got a HUGE canker sore out of nowhere, it was red and very very painful and made it hard to eat and drink, now 2 months later it has significantly improved, it no longer causes any pain nor is there a crater at the back of my mouth, but if i take a look back there where it was i still see a white patch where the sore was.

    Parkinson’s patient with breast cancer that is estrogen-based. I had surgery and a partial mastectomy. I was not given chemo or radiation the oncologist placed me on a estrogen-based cancer pill.

The breast cancer was actually on my chest wall. My concern is that a mammogram will not show the chest wall. What do I do should I be concerned that I was....

    Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

    Henrietta Lacks was born Loretta Pleasant on August 1, 1920 and died October 4, 1951 just nine months after being diagnosed with a highly progressive form of cervical cancer. Her story is compelling because Ms. Lacks's cells were essentially taken from her without her or her family's knowledge or consent and used for medical research. This research lead to the polio vaccine, the discovery of human telomerase, and has been a vital tool in other countless advances (Nature, 2019). Henrietta....

    Colon cancer - treatment time period

    My husband is scheduled for a second attempt to remove polyps & "see" if the cancer has spread. About a year & a half ago he had his first colonoscopy & they removed 9 polyps. 3 of which were cancerous.. so we've been told. I am having the absolute hardest time grasping what is actually going on because he is so vague & hates talking about his health. I'm only given quick overviews of what is going on & small bits of information from his doctor. I don't want....
