Myelodysplastic Syndrome or MDS

My husband, Rick, was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (cancer) almost three weeks ago. It is hard to wrap my mind around it. He has RAEB-1, with trilineage dsyplasia. For a long time, we have dealt with a blood disorder, thrombocytosis - a myelproliferative disorder. He has way too many platelets if not controlled by Hydroxurea. Well, he is off the that medication now, and has had six days of Vidaza instead. We are familiar with the inside of a hematology/oncology doctors office.

HepatoSplenic Lymphoma

Hello

I am new to this site.  Just wondering if anyone else has this particular or similar kind of monkey on their back. 

Not trying to be funny but I suppose humour is good...or so I have been told.  Anyway my liver is spiking along with the rest of my bloodwork except my hemoglobins, yay.   

I do not even know how to post tis but I will give it a whirl

omentum cancer

Hi everyone, before I ask anything I would just like to say thankyou in advance and also wish everyone on the site the best with what they are going through or have survived.

I am looking to speak to anyone male who has had omentum cancer as a metastasis from the bowel or other area as i have been led to believe its very different to people with primary omentum cancer. I know alot of women get it from ovarian but cannot find much information on men who have it or men speaking about having had it.

any information would be very much appreciated.

low platelets

Hi everyone. . .I've been on Temador (ONLY) now for 10 monthsfor pancreatic neuro endocrine  and after experiencing the drop in platlet syndrome I did some research and found the power of Papaya Leaf Extract. I buy the tea bags from Amazon and 1 cup a day has lept my platelets in check!!!.  When I travel I substitute payap Leaf Extract Cappsules also from Amazon unless I'm in Hawaii then I just dried the leaves and brewed my own tea.  Anyhow thought I'd share my positive results.  DO your own reserach on Papaya Leaf extract for low platelets.

New here and wondering if anyone else had choriocarcinoma??

I was diagnosed last February with ovarian choriocarcinoma after a miscarriage. Very rare cancer. It's been one year since my treatment and I feel pretty good physically. I haven't really talked much about what I went thru last year. People just don't understand. They try..but they just can't. So was just hoping someone out here could relate to me just a little bit:).

Gastrinoma

I have diagnosed with Gastrinoma last january in midgut and metastasis to liver on Octreotide LAR injection treatment, I was on PPI (Pantoprazole) for long time and I believe PPI caused the cancer, I would like to hear from other patients if they have same symptom and causes of the cancer.

Spindle Cell Sarcoma of the Kidney

At the end of 2015 my dad who is only 54 years old was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney cancer called Spindle Cell Sarcoma. In October of 2015 he went for a check up and was told there was a mass on his kidney over the next few months he was going back and forth to the hospital for different checks. In February 2016 he finally had his kidney removed and the mass which turned out to be bigger then his kidney, after the surgery he felt normal again but we waited nervously to find out the results on the tumor turns out it was cancerous...
