I have been diagnosed with 2 different types of cancer since late July and still have had no treatment. Prostate cancer was the first in late July and malignant Melanoma in mid Sept. I am scheduled to have surgery on Oct 8 to have 3 large lumps on my head and neck removed. It has been delay after delay and one 2 to 3 week wait after another. No one seems to be concerned about my situation and it is about to drive me crazy. Radiation Oncologist won't do Prostate therapy because of Melanoma and I will have to wait a while after Melanoma surgery to find out how bad the prognosis for the Melanoma is. I have been diagnosed with cancer since July 27th and still have had no treatment. Is it normal for Drs. to not be in a hurry to begin treatment? I am about to lose my mind thinking that everday this crap is growing inside of me and nobody really seems to care. I have had the lumps on my head and neck since May or June and my family doctor told me that they were nothing to worry about, said he has seen these several times. When I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer he suddenly had a change of heart and sent me to see a Surgon. He sent my for a biopsy and it came back positive for Melanoma. Went back to Surgeon and he sent me to Cancer surgeon who will do the cutting, another 2 1/2 week delay. This probably don't make much sense to anyone cause it don't make much sense to me. Just needed to get it off my chest.
