New breast cancer diagnosis

oh my!  Don't think you're ever prepared.  Just was diagnosed Tuesday it's surreal and dreamlike.  my niece is my surgeon and dear friend will do oncology treatment.....but.......what do I ask?  Don't even know where to start?  Have a family meeting Saturday to start dialogue with dr/niece about treatment plan but i guess I'm in shock and can't even think of questions.  

Spindle Cell Sarcoma of the Kidney

At the end of 2015 my dad who is only 54 years old was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney cancer called Spindle Cell Sarcoma. In October of 2015 he went for a check up and was told there was a mass on his kidney over the next few months he was going back and forth to the hospital for different checks. In February 2016 he finally had his kidney removed and the mass which turned out to be bigger then his kidney, after the surgery he felt normal again but we waited nervously to find out the results on the tumor turns out it was cancerous...

Concerned Daughter

Good Morning All.  Today my father is having an Ostreoscan.  I had never heard of it until today, so I was researching and found this site.  My father has survived lung cancer x2 and thyroid cancer.  Recently he was diagnosed with a pancreas lesion, several liver lesions, and a new lesion on one of his lungs. It is my understanding, the scan being done today is to help determine what/where his "primary" site.  At this point, he is being told the cancer he now has is a very slow cancer and they are planning to just "watch" it over the next few months.

Oral Cancer Survivor

I found it early!  I had partial glossectomy and neck dissection at UFHealth last October.  Cancer for 6 months!

 

 

Survivor of three different types of cancer and now another one to conquer

You know, what we can handle in our lives, with help from God, is truly amazing! 

I have survived renal cell carcinoma in 2006, one type of breast cancer and a mastectomy in 2011 and another type of breast cancer with another mastectomy in 2012. 

I was recently diagnosed with macroglobulinemia and I'm awaiting the results of the immunoelectrophoresis to find out the cause.

I am trying to stay positive by creating quite times for meditation with my higher power. These times bring me peace but I also need a community of friends. Tag, you're it!

Shh! Be Wewy, wewy qwiet…

My partner has a saying: "When in doubt, overdo it." Over the past few years, she has slowly been backing away from that habit. As someone with MS, it's hard on her. As her caregiver, it's hard on me. As her caregiver and a cancer patient, it's become that much harder on me.

My Journey - Entry 1

This may seem strange to begin a blog when I am going into the 6th year of my journey - I guess I really expected to only have a 2 year journey and then one thing led to another & here I am.  This is the first blog I have ever done, although I have journaled some and done a bit of writing.  I have finished my 3rd week of treatment (Taxol) in Cycle 1 - have had side effects I've not experienced in other treatments.  In researching, which my sister & I have done a lot of lately these past few years, I ran across Blogs and this helped me to know what to google so I could speak to my d

Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm Remission

I want recent and future BPDCN patients to know there is real hope with a new treatment of SL-401 through Clinical Trials. Hopefully this treatment will be approved soon. Here is my story of diagnosis, treatment and remission.

On Circumstances

April 13 will mark three months that I've been on Xarelto. My GP tells me that I can stop taking the blood thinner at that time. Then, some months after that, we can do another follow-up ultrasound. It takes time for the clot to clear completely, she said.

I still feel some very minor discomfort around my jugular vein when I yawn. It feels like a mild version of the discomfort I had felt after my port had first been inserted. My scar from the port removal continues to heal and my surgical skin remains in place. I still have a bit of venous swelling in my right arm.
