unexpected diagnosis!

I recently was diagnosed with RCC. I just turned 33 years old, being in the medical field myself,  I'am a very cautious person regarding my health. I exercise on a regular basis, vegetarian, etc. August 2014 I had my yearly physical which was nothing out of the norm. Except I noticed that I started having abdominal pain. My doctor ordered an ultrasound to rule out gallstones.  I returned 2 weeks after assuming it was nothing.  My dr. Informed me that I had no gallstones but they found a complex cyst on my right kidney.


That's what I have to say right now. Bleh. It's getting harder to post in my regular facebook because I don't want to say yet again that I feel sick to my stomach.

I've had days when I could walk and cook without a problem. Or that I felt social. But more often, I either feel like I'm going to puke or that I can barely stand or have really bad acid reflux.

Three Weeks Down

I am almost halfway through radiation. I noticed some minor skin changes after I got home today (I'm a bit more pink), but nothing bothers me. So far, so good.

The radiation center was decked out in a Hawaiian Luau theme for Halloween. I said I wasn't exactly on theme, but I could be Captain Spaulding (from the movie Animal Crackers) returned from the tropics.


The last chemo I had is going on 7 months.  I still have watering eyes, runny nose and also lost finger nails, (they are coming back) I have used eye drops, nothing seems to help, please tell me this will pass.

Journey with bladder cancer that has metastasized to the lung

I have just been diagnosed with bladder cancer that has  metastasized

to my lung (November 2014).


But let me give you some family history:

     My maternal grandmother died of kidney cancer.

I could use some advice, I feel lost

My boyfriend is 21 years old and has just been diagnosed with stage four kidney cancer.  His doctors are impressed with the state of his health however and gave him 2 years to live without treatment which is very uncommon for stage four from what I've been reading. They have prescribed him an 18 hour long laser surgery to get rid of the kidney tumor and the smaller nodules that have spread to his intestines, follwed by either radiotherapy or chemotherapy. They said they think they can get rid of the cancer.

Starting my Journey in Battling Breast Cancer

I had my biopsy done in October 2014. I chose the core needle biopsy over aspiration biopsy.

I learned last October 29, 2014 that I have Moderately Differentiated Invasive Ductal Carcinoma in my right breast

On going breast carcinoma studies are  ER, PR, K167 and Her2/neu . I was also approved for BRC 1 and 2 testing and I requested this test not only for me but for my children as well.

The cancer description is pinkish-tan measuring aggregate 2.2 x 0.4 cm

My background:

Stage IV Adenocarcinoma Lung met to Pleural Space

Hi Everyone. I have never joined any iof these sites before so please excuse me if I am interrupting a conversation.  Last summer I was operated on for Stage II adenocarcinoma lung cancer - right middle lobe. After a VATS removal of the middle lobe, my surgeon was confident he got it all.  Well I guess he was mistaken because now I have been diagnosed with Stage IV cancer as it has entered the pleural space.  There are multiple tumours and a small pleural effusion.  They can't use radiation as it would destroy my lung and not necessarily kill the cancer.

Marjorie E. Belson



I was Diagnosed with CLL In 2011 @ the tenderror age of 67 but was told by my oncologist that I probably have had it for 4 or 5 years based on whith bad count lvls.  She did a genetic test and conclused that it likely was contracted from agent orange during my time in Vietnam.  She also found during the testing phase that I also had Hemacromatois, or high amounts of iron in my red blood cells.
