I will never forget the day I found out I had breast cancer. The day was August 30,2012, my birthday! The first thought that came into my head was what a birthday present, then I thought this is one of the best gifts I could receive! I know that sounds a little strange, but I viewed this as my chance to live. Had we not found the cancer so early on the outcome could be one not of my liking. I decided that I would run with it, I pushed all my Doctors to get moving.

Went to the urologist because i passed a large kidney stone last month. After having a c scan done i went back to the urologist . He showed me the kidney stones in both kidneys and then showed me something in the upper right potion of the right kidney. A small tumor 1.2cm, i just about fell to the floor when he told me . He said there is a 70% chance that it is cancer. I am having surgery may 1, having robotic assisted partial nephrectomy. I hope it goes well, i am very scared and alone,no wife or girlfriend for support, not a good time to be alone.
Well I was 10/11 When I got my cancer I am now 21. I had a tumor on the right side of my head. The docters did not know what it was, so they treated it like E-wings Sarcoma. I went through chemotherapy for a year, and radiation for about a month and a half. It was tough, but I made it. My hair started to grow back, but only on my left side. At first I was embarrassed to be seen without a hat or wig on my head. I would not even let my immediate family see me that way. It took a while because of all the bullying I went through for not having hair.
I am a 66 year old male and I thought I was in perfect health. Aside from Asthma and Allergies I had never had any type of Serious Illness. That Changed a few months ago when my primary care physican sent me to a urologist because my PSA had creeped upward from 2.3 to 4.1. My Urologist gave me the usual series of test digital scan of my prostate, removal of samples to send to the lab. He told me before he sent the samples away that although my prostate was enlarged he "could not see" any cancer on his scan.
