    The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

    In my opinion I think that the book illustrates the significance of Henrietta Lacks’ life well. I am sure there were aspects of her life that weren’t captured which would be expected but enough was captured to get an understanding of who Henrietta and her family were. I am sure it is challenging to write a book on someone whom has since passed and are relying on family and friends testimony.

    27 year old Female SHOULD BE MENTIONED THAT ALL OF THESE SYMPTOMS ARE NOT LIKE ME AT ALL!!!

    Kidney cancer

    Does everyone get left in the dark like this? Long story, but nhs have been ridiculous with communication. I went to gp thinking he could tell me what was going on. Turns out he never had any notes.?? Pretty sure it's 2018 and any notes placed on computers are instantly accessible from another doctor. I had to phone the hospital and speak to the surgeon who informed me 3 weeks after ct scan! that there was an abnormality. What stage is most common when kidney cancer is diagnosed? Information....

    22 year old female, unexplained weight loss

    Not sure if this is the right forum! I’m a 22 year old female and my normal weight has always been around 112 pounds. I’ve noticed this past week that I’ve lost about 5 pounds without a diet physical activity change. I also get weird menstrual cycles where I bleed lightly mid cycle for a week, but not sure if that’s related. I’m going to the doctor today, but wanted to see if anyone else has any opinion, or if I should worry about something serious.

    Should I Listen to my Doctor?

    I'm six years cancer free (thyroid cancer-follicular lymphoma). A lump was found in my neck that was missing fatty hilum. He ordered another ultrasound and it says that it grew my 2 mm. He told me to schedule another ultrasound in 6 months. I'm only 19 so what are the chances and should I tell my doctor I should get a biopsy? Is it bad that it grew, is solid, and is missing fatty hilum?
