Protocols

The bank teller asked me, "Where's your camera?" Thus began my most recent cancer spiel.

For almost a decade I wore my camera everywhere, ready for a photo op. It could be the female cattle egret in breeding coloration, moseying around my supermarket's parking lot:

help needed to understand my mom's IBC stage 4

Hello:

My mom was diagnosed a little over a month ago with IBC. We found out it has spread to her liver and lungs. She is not one who wants to know prognosis but I am now very concerned. I wanted to compare the treatment options she's been given to what others have gotten. I'm trying to be an advocate for her. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

looking for advice and support

Hi All-new to this site. Been a crazy last month or so. I am a 49 year old female who recently found out that I have a 4.3 cm mass on the lower left pole of my kidney that needs to be removed. Because of where this is located, (back part of kidney and very close to the collecting duct) Dr. feels it would be best removed with open surgery and it will be a partial (thank goodness). After numerous opinions, I have found a doctor that I like who has over 30+ years experience. I am just scared and overwhelmed.

NPC--fear and uncertainty with waiting and possibly needing treatment again

Hi All. It's my first time on this network. Was hoping to join with the news of NED, but oh well.  I was diagnosed last Oct 2014 with NPC stage 2. Went through treatments the rest of 2014. Had a recent PET scan showing that my head and neck was all clear of the original cancer.  However, the scan also showed abnormal activity in the liver, slightly also on hip socket and L5. The corresponding CT and ultrasound on liver couldn't locate anything.  Scheduled for another CT this week and a bone scan.

Hangers-On

I took my partner to the podiatrist on Friday. As we waited in the examination room for the doctor, she asked me to read to her from the "blue foot" poster, a drawing of a foot with markings in blue where the bones are labeled.

I stood up and craned my neck to read the label she wanted.

Whoops.
