GETTING DIAGNOSIS IS KILLING ME

I have had ultrasound, throat scope, CAT scan and finally needle biospy.  SquaaSquamous Cell Carcinoma was found.  I am waiting for a Pet Scan and it is not scheduled till next week.  I fell like every test takes a week to get scheduled and I am becoming more and more aprenhensive.

 

Is there anything to do to make things move faster.  The cancer would found in a Lymph Node in my neck and I feel like the longer this takes the worse the cancer is getting.

Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma

I was diagnosed with this form of Cancer which is in the Childhood Cancer class at the age of 31 in May 2018. 6months of weekly Chemo treatments completed in 01/19. This has been the hardest battle of my life. Now the battle begins to see if the Cancer will return, I pray it does not, my chances look really good, I must stay positive it has kept me going this long. I pray for anyone who has been battling or battled Cancer, people don't understand how hard Cancer really is until they get it.

 

Let's inspire each other and SURVIVE!!!

Olfactory Neuroblastoma - 40 yo Woman - Seeking advice/connection

Hi, 

I’m a 40 yo female with (rare) diagnosis of right nasal cavity esthesioneuroblastoma or olfactory neuroblastoma, preliminary Hyams Grade 3, presumed Kadish Stage A.  On April 9th I underwent a craniotomy by an expanded endoscopic approach for resection of tumor. Negative margins were achieved. Plan for radiation therapy to follow.

Any one have similar diagnosis of ONB? I’m looking for any general advice or support? Has anyone used proton beam therapy instead of IMRT for radiation?

Lung cancer

I have small non-cell cancer of my lungs. Just found out from a CT on first of March going in for test this Thursday the 18th. I have spoke to a surgon and he wants to take out lower left lobe. I am 68 yrs old and quit smoking last year July the 1st. My husband passed away Dec 12 of last year after 37yrs. of marriage.All of this is so much and I really do not know what to do.

Can anyone help me with expectations on Cisplatin with 5FU?

I have finished 7 weeks of radiation, with 3 concurrent doses of Cisplatin. I have been prescribed 3 more "follow-up "seek and destroy"" dosages of Cisplatin with 5 FU.

I handled the radiation and Cisplatin reasonably easily. But, they're telling me the follow up doses are dispensed over a 4-day period. A "ball" goes on my belt on a Monday, and slowly delivers Cisplatin and 5FU into my blood port.

I'm wanting to know how people handled and dealt with this treatment. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Celebrating 22years cancer free of Adult onset PNET

Today I am celebrating 22 years free of a medistatic Primative Neuroectodermal Ewings Sarcoma.

I was diagnosed at the age of 47 with metastatic disease. Followed by radical excision, 2. 1/2 years of treatment that included multiagent chemo and radiation.

Today, as every year, I reflect on my survival. I always wonder how many more adults diagnosed with PNET are survivors like me. I wonder if there are any, if they suffer the long lasting side effects of the treatment, such as I do. 

I am just glad to be alive and have beat the odds for survival.
