    Intense itching and dimpling of reconstructed breast

    I had Stage 0 DCIS breast cancer the end of 2012. It was in two quadrants of my breast which meant I had to have that breast removed so I opted for a bilateral mastectomy. I have had intense itching off and on and was told that it was nerves trying to grow back. However, the itching has greatly increased to the point that I am digging at my breast, leaving marks and still cannot get the itch to stop. Also, I have noticed some minor dimpling in both breasts. I have tried putting lotion on and that....

  • Hard Lump Behind Ear, No Pain, Still Growing

    I've had this very hard immovable lump behind my ear for over 2 weeks now. It has grow quite a lot over the time but it's not painful at all. I had a few headaches (I very rarely get headaches) they are very dull however. My doctor believed it was an infection of some sort in my lymph nodes and gave me antibiotics, but it's not working. What other possibilities are there? Do you think I should visit an ENT as a per caution? What could this lump actually be? Is it possible that it is cancer....

    Ascitis in early stage Ovarian Cancer

    My mom who is 60 began retaining fluid in her abdomen a few weeks ago. Initial bloodwork, ultra sound and CT scan came back fine, clear, no masses or tumors found or visible. Upon more extensive bloodwork and analyzing the fluid they found ovarian cancer cells. Her Dr said it must be in early stages because there is NO other evidence of any cancer aside from cells in the fluid. Everything I've read directly correlates ascitis in OC as late or end stage... has anyone else been diagnosed with ascitis....

    Does this look like melanoma

    I don't remember when this showed up on my skin, maybe 4 years ago. I never got it checked until recently. My pcp wasn't to concerned but I am going to go to a dermatologist anyway. I am waiting for my referral and I am feeling really nervous! I am just wondering if anyone thinks this looks cancerous. Also if it is how worried I should be that it's been there so long. I know no one can say for sure online but I would just like some opinions. Thank you.

  • Prostate Question

    I am 65 years old. I was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. I have a question about the prostate, in general. During my lifetime I have been exposed to a plethora of carcinogens - lead, mercury, second hand smoke, radiation, severe sun burns, oil refineries, etc. So, why the prostate? What is it about the prostate that made it more susceptible than any other part of my body?

    CEA Blood Test?

    Does anyone know what this test is for, I also can't find the results on the test results sheet. It came to my attention because it's almost $150 and Medicare refuses to pay for it. I tried to look it up and it seems to be related to cancer. I have a lousy doc he didn't even mention it when he went over the blood tests with me. I think this man has PTSD or some other condition that causes explosive outbursts. I'm afraid to ask him anything especially if he's in a good mood. Normally....
