    Concerned regardin a lump

    Yesterday I got my tubes tired or burned by laser to sterilize myself to not have any more children. While everything went good, the doctor was kind enough to give me a few photographs of the procedure. So my main concern is an image behind one of my ovary. It is a little lump that it’s getting me confused, it looks like a pimple. I was not able to see the doctor when I woke up because he had to go for an emergency. I have attached a picture, could anybody tell me if am overreacting or should I go....

    5 year survivor ... highly elevated LDH

    I’m a nervous wreck. I successfully conquered triple negative breast cancer in 2012. It was tough, with chemo, radiation, surgery and a 2 week icu stay due to a rare side effect of Taxole. On Tuesday I had my annual check in with A new oncologist because my old one retired from the firm. She was very thorough and ran labs. She called me yesterday morning to let me know that my liver enzymes were high and that we needed to address that. She said we could wait a couple of weeks and retest or we could....

    Lymph Node

    Approximately a week and-a-half ago, I noticed two, small movable bumps near the base of the left-side of my neck. The bumps are pea-sized and I can move them with ease. The bumps are not tender and not noticeable by sight. I had a physical in early January and CBC was normal. I also was at a "doc in the box" about a week ago and he told me not to worry. That said, I worry. Is it normal to be able to feel your lymph nodes? How would I know if there is a problem?

    Rectal Bleeding and Other Symptoms... Should I be worried?

    Hello! I am a healthy 19 year old male with no prior history of health issues. My father died of esophageal cancer that metastasized to other parts of his body at 35 years old. No real history of medication, except for I did take a 6 month dose of Accutane to treat severe acne. This was about 1-2 years ago. So the problem started within this past year. The issue is that I have been experiencing painful and bloody bowel movements for a while now and it has gradually gotten worse over the past year....
  • Rectal cancer aged 72

    Hi, My Mum has been diagnosed with rectal cancer stage 111 although the pathology reports don't confirm this the surgeon still wants to go ahead and remove the tumor leaving Mum with a permanent stoma (colostomy bag) We are trying to weigh up the pros and cons, as it stands my Mum is leading a normal life, she smokes/drinks/and isn't active but is happy, our fear is that post surgery she isn't fit enough to recover as well as someone younger/healthier etc, so we are thinking of refusing....
  • 2 CT Scans In A Row

    Hello, yesterday I had to have 2 CT scans in a row, due to my pants not being down far enough on the first one. I was already concerned about the potential risks of these scans, but having to have 2 back-to-back like that really concerns me. The question I have is this; is it normal procedure to do 2 quick scans in a row like that? I hate to ask a stupid question like this, but would like to hear your thoughts. These scans took place here in a hospital in Georgia. My scans didn't find anything....

    Trying to find someone that has had or has vaginal cancer or vulva cancer. Had a vulva lesion biopsy two years ago that turned out to be only precancerous.

    Colonoscopy

    3 yrs ago, I had my 3rd colonoscopy. I'm on a kidney/pancreas transplant list, so having a colonoscopy often is important. I've never had an issue, to my knowledge. Recently I saw 1 of my doctors who offhandedly, mentioned my last colonoscopy showed precancerous polyps. Wouldnt that be something I should have been told about right away? It sounds like a serious diagnosis
