  • What should I do?

    I am a 16 year old female in high school. I've had sign of colon cancer for a while now but never thought of colon cancer is the probability of diagnosis. Colon cancer also runs in the family, my great grandfather, grandfather, and I don't know if my dad has it or not, and my greatgrandma of my mom's side all have passed from colon cancer. So it 100% runs in the family. I don't want to freak out my dad but then again I don't want him to think I'm being dramatic. I went to....

    Does this mole look benign or malignant??

    I recently noticed a mole on my toe that I haven't always had. At first I thought maybe it was a tick but it looks like a mole. I don't have the option to visit the doctor right now, and it's really hard for me to tell. It does look like it has two colors but I'm just not sure. Help?? I also have those brown lines under my toenails and finger nails so I was a little concerned it may be melanoma. Pictures:

    Post Colposcopy Sex Drive Loss

    Hi. In 2016 I was told I had HPV but it wasn’t serious enough to take any action. A year later I got my yearly Pap smear and I had developed 4 large clusters that had to be removed and biopsied in a colposcopy. My results came back and I’m fine. It’s been about 8 months since my procedure and I have lost a lot of my sex drive. It takes a lot of relaxation and concentration for me to be “in the mood” and it has taken a damper on my relationship because my boyfriend thinks I find him undesirable which....

    Penile Cancer?

    Months ago I’ve spotted a bump/growth on the side of my penis, Its under my foreskin so I can’t see it because I have phimosis and whatever it is made my foreskin tighter on one side. Even if I loosened my foreskin by stretching it’d still be hard to retract because of whatever is underneath it on the side of my head. It seems to cause me micro tears every now and then. One side of my penis head is definitely bigger as if it’s swollen which would be the side with the bump / growth. My penis also....

    Kidney cancer

    Does everyone get left in the dark like this? Long story, but nhs have been ridiculous with communication. I went to gp thinking he could tell me what was going on. Turns out he never had any notes.?? Pretty sure it's 2018 and any notes placed on computers are instantly accessible from another doctor. I had to phone the hospital and speak to the surgeon who informed me 3 weeks after ct scan! that there was an abnormality. What stage is most common when kidney cancer is diagnosed? Information....

    I've had a sore in my mouth for over a month.

    Exactly what it says on the tin. It's really painful, and bleeds when I chew food on the left side of my mouth, and it's been there for... well, a month. I've tried just not chewing on that side, but it's still there. It actually feels like it's been growing a little. I'm kinda freaked. That's exactly what oral cancer is supposed to be like. I went to the dentist's today, and they're giving me some sort of thing to rub on my cheek to see if it gets rid of it in....
