I am having a fear of cancer and I like to ask

you all some questions. One question is, I had swollen lymph nodes in my abdomen, does this mean a good sign of me getting stomach cancer or esophageal cancer. I am 34 years old and a non smoker and don't drink much but do once in a great while. I like to know what most of your ages where at dx and how old are you know and how are you doing with it. Thanks all, RS

These are much better questions for your physician. I am 46, was diagnosed at 45 after an episode of vomiting blood. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I am now cancer free. From all that I have read - gastric cancers occur more often in men over fifty than any other demographic group. For esophageal cancer questions go to www.eccafe from there you will find links to a list serve esophageal group (of 1200 participants) and a yahoo chat group that meets twice a week.

hi bke! my dad was also diagnosed with stomach cancer (stage two) 3 yrs. ago. he to had surgery,chemo.,and radiation.his cancer had not spread to lymph nodes but just last week on a routine 6 month ct scan they noticed a "thickening of the stomach" and two small masses outside stomach wall.you said you were cancer free--that is wonderful but i would like to know your story if possible--i guess i wanted to pretend like my dads cancer neverhappened but now this news. i know that once you have cancer you always have it and worry about it returning.i would love to know anything that you are doing to prevent a recurrence and do you have routine ct scans?
