    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....

    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....

    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....

    Can heredity play into cancer susceptibility?

    Two of my uncles died of cancer (one in 1950 at the age of 16, no idea what kind of cancer; the other in his 60s after battling lung, bone, lymphoma, and finally brain cancer). My 79-year old mother has a form of leukemia (her dr. said it's more of an annoyance, that if you're going to get cancer that this is the one to get). Now one of my cousins (in his 60s) just passed away from pneumonia complications from leukemia found 4 weeks ago (a dangerous and aggressive form, though his dr. said....

    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....

    Fear of Lung Cancer

    Hello. I am a 33 year old male and I have been smoking for the past 2 years. I also have asthma. Currently I am trying to stop smoking, so I go a couple of days without smoking and then a few days a smoke again. I am quite worried about a symptom I have currently developed. Each morning I wake up and cough and I am getting out all the gunk from the smoking. However the days that I do smoke again and more specifically smoke at night before going to sleep, the next morning when I cough, I can see in....
