    Waldenstrom Macroglobelemia

    June 8, 2015, the day I was told I had cancer. Went in January for my annual checkup. Dr. kept calling me back for more blood work. I thought, here I go again. I've been anemic all my life, since I was 19 yrs. old, so I figured this Dr. is going thru what I've experienced in the past. But this time, my Dr. sent me to the hematologist/oncologist, since he "has taken this case as far as he could." She went on to take yet further tests, finally performing a biopsy. Still I didn't....

    Did I do the Right Thing

    Originally, I was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor of the right ovary. I was told a hystorectomy was all that was needed to get rid of it and no further treatment was needed. 3 years later, I was found to have pre cancerous tumors of the colon, and during the next 3 colonoscopy exams. Each time they were removed and I was told that as long as I went at least every 3 years for removal, I would not developed full blown Colin cancer. 3 years later, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had surgery....

    First Mammogram

    I'm 30 years old and had my annual exam on Monday. During my breast exam, the doctor said my right one felt dense. After feeling the left one she went back to the right one and said she wanted me to get a mammogram. She said it's probably nothing but wants to be safe because women in their 30s can get breast cancer. Plus I have a family history. This has put me in a bit of panic mode. The test is in 2 weeks. I'll be getting an ultrasound as well. I'm just trying to wrap my head around....

    Should i get an X-ray or any other type of test ?

    Hi! I am 21-years-old med. student and I am currently banging my head on this question. My father died of lung caner 5 years ago /It was actually lung metastasis. The original disease was nasopharyngeal cancer /. He was a smoker. A year later my grandfather /the father of my father/ died of lung cancer as well/ /He was never a smoker, but he had a psychological brake-down after my father died/. Currently I have no complaining about my health - I do not smoke, I don't cough, I don't feel any....
