I have narcolepsy so I am still battling that fatigue even while I take the amphetamines to help me stay awake.

No symptoms, and no primary found on skin or otherwise. A solitary pulmonary nodule was found via unrelated CT scan of my chest.

Just a discoloration on my upper arm; had been there for years, but had developed a black quadrant, and had a "buzzy" feeling on occasion. One caregiver had told me it was "nothing", years ago.

Bloating, abdominal pain low & in lower left, constipation & diarrhea,
Pain in the Abdomen. NO SWELLING, NO ASCITES... very unusual symptoms
As they say, ovarian cancer "whispers" and in my mom's case it was true to form. She started eating slightly less, started having slight/occasional heart burn, and was ever so slightly less energetic. Unfortunately, none of us noticed these things until after she was diagnosed. Here are the symptoms/events that led to her diagnosis: The week before my mom went to the doctor she mentioned a few times that her stomach wasn't feeling good and that she wasn't eating too much. That Sunday she felt overly full after having only toast and coffee for breakfast, she continued to feel "bloated" all day and was unable to eat. The next morning her pants were tight around her belly and she was still unable to eat. My sister (who is a nurse) told her to get to the Dr ASAP. Her GP couldn't fit her in until Thursday (3 days later) but my sister told her not to wait and to go to the walk in clinic and request a CT scan. She went and the walk in clinic doc set her up for a CT scan the following day. The next day my moms belly was even bigger than before and she had to stop several times in the parking lot b/c she said she "felt like she was going to pass out" the results were set to her GP who called her in on Wednesday to give her the results. My sister knew then that something was wrong since she suddenly was able to see her on Wednesday. By Thursday she was in to see the doctor who would later become her oncologist.

I guess it all began on my 5th birthday. After months of bruising, nosebleeds, ear infections, chest colds, obnoxiously high fevers, and muscle pains so severe that I was unable to walk, I was diagnosed with ALL (acute lymphocytic leukemia). I went into remission a few months after treatment, and after a 3-year protocol I was pronounced a "full cure" at age 8. For 10 years I experienced absolutely no further symptoms, and just lived an extraordinarily normal & boring life without giving that stupid disease another thought. Then, I broke my arm. No big deal, right? Well, at my 10th annual follow-up checkup, I was told that - suprise! - I had localized osteosarcoma in my left radius (lower arm bone), and was in the early stages of AML (acute myelogenous leukemia). I underwent 1 year of chemo & radiation, as well as surgical removal of the osteogenic sarcoma & a bone graft (limb-salvage a complete success: my arm is still intact!). After going in and out of remission, I had a bone marrow transplant. 1 year later, I was pronounced in "full" remission, and discontinued all treatments the subsequent year. I had no further symptoms. 8 months ago I learned that my AML was no longer in remission. Here we go again :)

Hemorrhoids- went to OB/GYN in Feb complaining of hemorrhoids. Then again in April with pressure she said hemorrhoids. Knew something was wrong so self scheduled with colo rectal doctor.
Bleeding during bowel movements for a few days, then nothing for a couple of months. After this and over a period of two weeks a strong feeling of never having completed a bowel motion became apparent. This happened very, very quickly as there was almost nothing to indicate that anything was amiss beforehand except for the bleeding, to which my response was to amble off to my GP and for her to arrange for a colonoscopy in the new year sometime for a check up. It was over Christmas 2011 that the tumour seemingly grew rapidly, and after coming back from camping I did a self-examination (and I really, really urge anyone to do this as it was the clincher for me) and took myself to hospital rather than wait. Best decision I've made in my life.
swollen inguinal (groin) lymph nodes left side only, later found area of hardness between perineum and anus with small lump at anus mistaken for hemorrhoid.

I forgot to mail it in and drove to the VA and had them give me another one, did it and that afternoon i returned it...two days later i received a call to schedule a colonoscopy for June 04, 2018. results came back positive for a ployp that was excised and also a 4-5cm malignant growth on the dentate line of the anus--right smack in/around my spinchter muscle. T3N0M0...prognosis seems to be really good as it has not traveled nor gone into nodes. scheduled to start chemo/radiation with 5-FU and mitomyacin first 4 days and last 4 days using a PICC line.

Mesothelioma Cancer Symptoms

What Mesothelioma Cancer Survivors said about their Cancer Symptoms.

chronic cough, shortness of breath, weakness, fatigue, anemia
28 lb Mass of 100's of tumors stemming from my peritoneum. Basically your peritoneum allows your organs to glide around in your abdomen. It produces and absorbs fluid. My peritoneum stopped working correctly and continued to flood my abdomen with cyst pockets. I went for many therapy drains which included abdomen taps into these fluid pockets, draining 4 liters of fluid at a time to remove this toxic fluid. The amount of mass and fluid filled my abdomen to the stage where it blocked, impeded, and mangled organs with my abdomen. Ouch! So painful. Some needle taps could not safely reach through my abdomen and it was necessary to tap through my pelvis to reach some cyst pockets. I continually met with doctors who told me my condition was benign! This fluid glowed like mountain dew. Sometimes it was brown and bloody during my more painful periods. Eventually it mangled my ovaries so severely they did metastasize I lost so much work. I lost my jobs. I couldn't find any doctors to help me, only experimental procedures tapping these fluid pockets. I finally found a wonderful surgeon Dr. Paul Sugarbaker, who not only finally was able to cut this complicated mass from my body but saved my life. Life isn't the same. I have ongoing challenges. But I have learned acceptance. I thank God every day for the days I have. I love life!

Large mass in right thigh
Mass in the back of upper right thigh. Grew quickly. After radiation, surgery and chemo, had mets to lungs in three separate lobes. Have had three thoracatomy procedures and experimental whole lung radiation after multiple areas of spread throughout chest cavity. I have since had pread to my brain (one tumor) resected with a successful craniotomoy followed by whole brain radiation. I have been on 6 lines of chemo. While I was recovering from my brain procedures, was scanned and found multiple tumors throughout my liver. After exhausting all chemo options accessible for me, my doctor succeeded in obtaining Opdivo for me on compassionate grounds. I have been on this treatment for almost months, and happily, my tumors are responding, no new growth, multiple tumors no longer visible, decreased or stable. I was told that with these newest images, I have an area of concern on my uterus. I am getting tests next week for clarification on what this means.

I did not have any outward signs of a lump or rash etc. I initially noticed a slight ache is my left leg which did not go away. Then, as weeks passed, it was steadily becoming for obvious and the pain, though always an dull ache, at times became very sharp. No amount of Panadol or Anti Flams, even Coedine would touch the pain. My GP had me referred to a Physio as she thought it was Sciatica - so was seeing the Physio and having acupuncture - but this was making my pain worse and was getting unbearable. I notices my toes were now tingly and numb, this was when my GP referred me to hospital, and was admitted.

My cancer presented atypically. My very first symptom was not enlarged lymph nodes or fevers or itching, but severe bone pain in my lower back that radiated down into my left leg. This persisted for several weeks before I began experiencing fevers and night sweats. Sed rate was elevated but not extraordinarily. Doctors were baffled. First they thought it was lupus and then RA and then they told me it was all in my head - growing pains or some other lame-ass diagnosis. The symptoms continued and steadily worsened over the next several months before somebody finally had the sense enough to do an MRI and bone scan. These revealed a lesion near the L-4 vertebrate. A biopsy was performed and although the lesion did not have the characteristic features of lumbar osteomyelitis, that was the pathological diagnosis and what I was treated for. I underwent placement of PICC line for intravenous treatment for osteomyelitis. A chest x-ray was performed afterward to confirm correct placement of PICC line. It was at this time the radiologist detected lesions on the x-ray. I was referred to the Mayo Clinic. A CAT scan with IV contrast showed extensive mediastinal enlargement, mediastinal and hilar adenopathy, and lesions in the pulmonary parenchyma. The lumbar portion of the CAT scan reveled lymphatic involvement in the spinal region that was previously biopsied. A mediastinoscopy was performed but all tissue that was removed was identified as normal thymus. The surgeon then performed a thoracotomy and biopsied a large perihilar lymph node. The final pathology report showed nodular sclerosing Hodgkin's disease in the the lung and hilar lymph node, making it a stage 4B lesion. It took six months from the onset of symptoms until a definitive diagnosis could be made. My case was so atypical. There was never any palpable lymph nodes until the very end. In fact, the diagnosis was made almost by accident---by a random chest x-ray to determine proper placement of PICC line. I underwent six cycles of ABVD/MOPP and radiation to chest and spine. NED as of April 1992. July 1992 I began experiencing night sweats and fevers. Sed rate was elevated but no palpable lymph nodes. CAT scan of chest in August 1992 revealed changes in the mediastinum which was suspicious of recurrence. Underwent biopsy at Mayo Clinic 8/92 but surgeon could find no evidence of disease. Symptoms continued unabated. Lesions evident on liver, but liver biopsy returned normal. A second thoracotomy a week later revealed Hodgkin's. Stage 4B with involvement in liver, spleen and anterior mediastinum. Returned home and received 3 cycles of DECAL salvage therapy followed by autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant. NED as of 4/1993.
