    Swollen Lymph Nodes In Neck For 4 Years

    Alright, so I'll admit I have a tendency to be a bit of a hypochondriac, but I promised myself I would write this post and then be done with it once and for all unless I get any alarming responses from someone who has been in the same boat as me. Right before I graduated high school, I became very sick for a week and my doctor said he believed it was mono. It was the most sick I have ever been in my life, and really haven't been sick since then other than the common cold every now and then....

  • Help?

    So I have had a very stressful week at school with SATs and PSATs. Four days ago I started coughing and became tired, for no reason, it felt like I always had something in my throat. I have also lost 10 pounds in two weeks, But probably because I was sick and didnt eat much.

    Multiple Myeloma Treatment Questions

    I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in October, 2017. My MM manifested itself in my kidneys (no bone fractures or other tumors) which have returned to normal function after an induction treatment of Velcade, Cytoxin, and Dex every week for approximately 8 months. At the end of this treatment, I had no M-spike. I transitioned to every other week Velcade shots initially but began showing a slight M-spike after 2 months. Dex was added to my Velcade regimen and I have been receiving this treatment....

    Staples surfacing on scar

    Sorry if this isn't on the right board. I had Melonoma 3.5 years ago. I have two large scars, one from where they removed the skin cancer and the other where they removed my lymph nodes. The scar where they removed my lymph nodes, I think there are staples surfacing. In two spots, on each side of the scar, there are tiny black dots. I am going to call my surgeon tomorrow to confirm he used staples and if I need to be seen. However, I just left for vacation for 4 days. Is this normal after 3.5....

    I had a cyst removed on the 24th of August on my left breast, it was non-malignant thank God - but it still gives sharp needles and pins

    I had a cyst removed on the 24th of August on my left breast, it was non-malignant thank God - but it still gives sharp needles and pins. I went to the doctor who had the surgery done and he said healing takes almost a year? It was nearer to my nipple, just below the left side of my nipple. I get sharp stings/pain all over my breast, sometimes its at an area so far away from my scar so I was wondering if this is normal? The doctor said it might be a nerve that was disturbed during the procedure,....

    Abnormal rough lump on palm of hand.

    About 3 months agI I noticed what seemed to be a callous on my palm. I hadn't been doing any thing to cause a callous. Over time it started to grow. Now it is a little larger than a pea. It has a red ring around it and it has a yellowish tint to it. It causes me pain when something touches it. Does anyone know what this is?

Thanks for you time for understanding.
