    Can you tell me what this result means??? BUN/Creatinine Ratio 34 Reference Range: 9-23

    I just notice my 10/27/2017 and 04/26/2018 were 34.9 & 29.6 (after chemo 3 month and 9 month) mg/mg, but a year ago when I were in good condition was 17.4. Should I schedule to see doctor? Or it is normal? Why my oncology doctor order lab test but never talk to me about these.? Is that means I am perfectly fine?

    On my right breast on the side there has been a red hard bump for years. The other day I noticed that it was slightly bigger and looked bruised, it was also soft in middle so I poked it a couple times with a needle (Sorry I know thats gross lol) Some blood and yellow liquid came out and it still hurts. It has hurt for about a week now.

    I have a lesion, or wound. I think its skin cancer.

    I had this lesion above the ankle. It will scab over in a few days and scab will fall out. Then when I am its over. It comes back. The time frame has been a few months, goes and comes back. It looks one of the pictures of different cancers. When I put a bandaid on it. It will seep under the bandaid. If i leave bandaid off, i don't want the scar to touch anything. I hear that melanoma is worse kind of skin cancer. When my appt isnt till Jul. What am I do in the meantime? cindigal

    Hospital refuses to do Dr ordered cat scans

    My husband is an 8 yr survivor of colon cancer. Now he has pain again in that area. His Dr ordered cat scans with contrast and Benadryl plus something else for reactions to contrast. The hospital refuses to do the scans because he reports that he had trouble with contrast in the past. What should we do now? He is so discouraged because he can’t find out what is wrong with him.
