    Can massage therapy can reduce my nausea feeling due to the chemotherapy?

    Hi, I am a cancer patient. I am suffering from blood cancer. I used to have fever frequently in a gap of ten days. I was taken to the doctor, he couldn’t diagnose it because my fever goes down if I have tablets. But finally, as my mother told me to have a blood culture. The culture result was not that good. It gave the news that I am a cancer patient. As part of cancer treatment, I am undergoing chemotherapy. As a result of chemotherapy, I feel tired all throughout the day. I used to sleep for the....

    Negative Thyroglobulin/thyroid tissue regrowth

    Hi. I am 16 years post-thyroidectomy. I had two rounds of radioactive iodine following my surgery. All has been fine since. Today I had a routine ultrasound of my neck and review of my recent blood results. My thyroglobulin was fine, as it has always been since my RAI treatments. But the ultrasound showed bilateral tissue regrowth. I am scheduled for an ultrasound guided biopsy soon. Has anyone experienced this? Thank you in advance!

    Could this be lymphoma?

    I have had a lump in my neck for about 5 months but quite recently i have started to get more symptoms that may point to cancer more specifically lymphoma.

    Bump on tonsil tissue

    I'm 20 years old and I generally struggle with health anxiety. I have never smoked anything in my life and I have never tasted alchohol.

About 3 weeks ago I had the flu so I had a sore throat and just felt sick. I don't get sick often and honestly I had never looked into my throat before until I had that flu. I checked as my symptoms were....

    Oral cancer/hpv/previous cancer survivor

    I am a rape and cancer survivor. I have hpv which is the cause and effect of both. About 4 years ago I was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma and had to have a partial radical vulvectomy along with a previous tumor removal. I was never given clean margins and was to return for check ups every few months. About 6 months into recovery I noticed a white patch at the base of my tongue, I didn't think much of it, there was no pain and my mouth looked healthy otherwise. Fast forward about a year....
  • 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....
