    Worried sick about abdominal pain

    Started in Nov. GP did bloodwork and ultrasound of my abdomen. Those came back normal. Went to GI and was he assumes it’s nothing to be alarmed about and scheduled a colonoscopy and endoscopy. Felt okay for almost 3 months. Now the pain is back in my upper right side and back. The endoscopy was normal and colonoscopy found 4 polyps. He has ordered a CT scan with contrast and barium. He still says he wouldn’t worry. The pain is strange, dull. And the anxiety over this is debilitating. Even googling....

    Very nervous

    Hi I’m a 18 year old boy and I’ve been struggling with anxiety and stress over whether I have cancer or not. About 5 weeks ago I was struggling with painful urination and occasional blood coloured urine, but mostly just painful urination. I had a urine test but no blood or infection were found. I now have a ultrasound scheduled for my bladder. But upon waiting for my scan , I’ve been experiencing stomach issues. I’ve been getting sharp pains in my upper stomach and around the edges of my rib cage....

    Colon cancer - treatment time period

    My husband is scheduled for a second attempt to remove polyps & "see" if the cancer has spread. About a year & a half ago he had his first colonoscopy & they removed 9 polyps. 3 of which were cancerous.. so we've been told. I am having the absolute hardest time grasping what is actually going on because he is so vague & hates talking about his health. I'm only given quick overviews of what is going on & small bits of information from his doctor. I don't want....

    Abnormal growth in rectum

    Hello, I am a 23 years old male, and recently I was curious to find out about prostate orgasms so I looked it up on Google.

Lying on my back, I inserted a finger in my anus and I felt something oddly shaped but it wasn't towards my front side, but towards my back side. It is located around 2-3 inches inside if I am relaxed. It seems that when I relax....

    Colon cancer? Lymphoma?

    About 6 months ago, I noticed a swollen lymph node under my collarbone and now several others just a little higher on my neck.

    Antibody Mapping

    Is it possible to map antigens and construct a map of what all antigens belong to what cells. Furthermore could we not work on ways to synthesize antibodies to those antigens leading to a potential means to end disease and cancers of all kinds?
