My husband is 45 and was diagnosed in March with AA III after one seizure. He had surgery March 22 in Memphis removing 90% of tumor. He is under care of doctors at MD Anderson currently. Taking 440mg of Temodar 5 days per month. MRI's every 2 months. He has a great attitude and is back to work. I'm scared to death of it growing again. The part remaining is in his thalamus, right frontal lobe. Have been to Barnes in St Louis for consultation. If he needs 2nd surgery later, I want to make sure we take the best route. Not sure what that is. Any advice is appreciated!
In late January, 2007 I started seeing some "pink" in my urine. It only lasted a few days, but everything I saw on the web said "SEE THE DOCTOR NOW!" So I did; fortunately I have good insurance. My primary care doctor gave me some scrips for an antibiotic and a "prostate relaxer" and sent off blood and urine samples. So two weeks later I went back, and all that showed was I did not have prostate cancer and there was blood in my urine (at the point I gave the sample I could still see it so no surprise there, but had since disappeared).
One phone call the nurse said; "Good News, It's not cancer". "the doctor will see you on monday."
I had the surgery last tuesday and the results came in on friday. she didnt say what it was. so i'll find out monday.
Just found out on 10/18/2013 that a biopsy of a swollend lymph in my neck was positive for advanced squamous cell carcinoma -I am scared, frightened, and angry. I go to see a specialist at Johns Hopkins on the 22nd, I have read many posts online about it and one persons diary on what they went through. My wife and kids are with me and tell me we are going to beat this. It is hard to sleep and I hate it that fall is here and the days are short, I never want the day to end or the sun to go down, I haven't told my extended family yet or friends, only my boss. My mom die
i am not sure if anyone will beable to read this, cause i am new at this and i am not a computer wiz. I was diagnose with thyroid cancer in 2005. They removed my thyroid and have been takeing thyroid medicine ever since. In December of 2011, I was diagnosed with malinant pherial (SP)nerve shealth sarcoma. I went through radiation for five weeks five days a week. I had to wait for a "COOL DOWN" period before they could do surgery. May 30th of 2012, I underwent 11 hours of surgery, 900 stitches and skin graphs.
New here, jw if a dr can tell by looking at the node during the surgery if it is benign ??????
my surgeon told my family n I that FNA was +. And that was the reason for excision of r groin node.
After surgery, he told them it looked benign but he was sending it off for pathology.
Was he just easing their minds? I thought path report was only way.
Having had enough of everything being breast cancer awareness (even my prescription refills come with pink breast cancer awareness caps), I posted the following as my FB status. I also made an additional significant donation to my surgeon's research project - if what he's working on comes to fruition, there will be a lot of happy people on this forum! Alice

That last entry got cut off. I had a pretty significant complication back in the spring. Have known for awhile that I have developed steosis of the right internal carotid artery, it showed on my CT scans. Had opted against intervention because I have been so close to treatment and recurrence I didn't want to have yet another invasive procedure, then die of cancer. So in late Febr I had an occular stroke, painless sudden loss of half the vision of my right eye. So in I went where I had a ballooning and stent placed. No problems with the procedure, re
