He went from those thoughts to the doctors finding a tumor on shoulder..(no problem, odds are that it is benign)...to hearing lung cancer with metastisis to shoulder and large bones... and 12-18 months???

Drenching sweats, fever, pain, cough, shortness of breath
I found a large hard lymph node tumor in my right super clavicle neck. That tumor was growing a few more off spring tumors around it, then it spread to my left side of neck. Both sides of my neck were bulging with noticeable lumps. I was having severe night sweats with extreme fatigue and constant itching on my lower back and legs. I have narcolepsy so I am still battling that fatigue even while I take the amphetamines to help me stay awake. I started getting a funny phloem in my chest that would make me cough and it would get stuck in the back of my throat. Whenever I went to talk, I would have to clear my throat from that thick mucous. After doing the CAT Scan and Pet Scan it was noted that I was loaded with tumors from my sinuses down to my groin and in both lungs.
Enlarged lymph nodes in neck for the past two years, which two physicians dismissed
abdominal pain especially when lying down to sleep; dizziness; shortness of breath; ultimately detection was a large mass growing on the back of my shoulder - excised and biopsied. Doctors say it is so rare that only 8 out of 700,000 cases of lymphoma are manifested/diagnosed via an external lesion like mine.

loss of appetite, fatigue, drenching night sweats, fevers, consistent weight loss, extreme backache, itchy skin
Weight loss, then weight gain, fatigue/tiredness, "swollen glands" (or so they kept telling me until it was discovered that my neck was full of cancer), a general feeling of "otherness" -- even before the lumps became palpable, I felt something was off. I told several doctors, "I know this sounds crazy, but I feel like I'm living in someone else's body." Other strange, small symptoms: my forearms were sometimes insanely itchy with a blotchy sunburn-type rash, I often ran a low fever, my hair got very dry and breakable, and I craved weird foods as if I was pregnant.
Mass in parotid gland, lymphadenopathy of both sides of chest, a large mass in left armpit, and large and small hypermetabolic liver lesions, large and small.
None; I was diagnosed accidentally, through an unrelated ultrasound - although, in retrospect I realize I was having night sweats.
tumor pressing on L4-S2 spinal cord with pain and neurologic issues, sciatic pain, tingling and numbness. No typical lymphoma symptoms
7 cm lump on left side of neck and many throughout the body. No other symptoms. This was a complete surprise and shock.
My lower back started to swell and it hurt excrutiatingly bad just to get out of bed much less do anything else. I thought it was a slipped disk or pulled muscle because all I do is work out 2 hous a day, every day. Who looks for cancer is a 21 year old?
night sweats, chronic sore throat
Painless Lump in Neck and Groin
None that I knew of before diagnosis. About a week before my hernia surgery I thought maybe I was coming down with a cold. My left ear and nostril were plugging up, at first nothing a yawn / blow wouldn't clear up...then...I started taking sudafed to clear it up...and it kind of felt like when I would blow...I couldn't get it out...and if I tried to sniff, I couldn't get it up...pretty frustrating...ALL of this cleared up with the first treatment.
Night sweats, rash, and itching
Extreme Fatigue
A violent cough that wouldn't quit.

Melanomas of the Skin Cancer Symptoms

What Melanomas of the Skin Cancer Survivors said about their Cancer Symptoms.

went in for a checkup, was referred for a specialist, had it removed no issues. Went in again after picking at a spot that I didnt know was a mole and it bled. Went in to have it removed and the rest is history- and the beginning of my journey began. Have since had over 20 spots removed
Itching, Bleeding, Red flat or raised areas
mosquito looking bump that appeared out of nowhere and then a black dot appeared in the corner 4 months later
bad skin
Found a rather large mole on upper right shoulder when I was in high school. Kept an eye on it. It kept getting larger….began as dime size changed into almost half dollar size within 8 years and had developed 3 darker dots on the inside of the mole towards the middle. Also raised a bit higher off the skin. (((BTW --->>> I finally joined blog4acure this past month after being a regular reader since 2009 when my mother-in-law was diagnosed with cervical cancer/stage4.) )) Also >>>>My 'new' account has been disabled???? I hadnt been able to access it since I set it up! So if your wondering where I was...hmmmm...... I finally decided to create a new blog page since no body would respond via email to me @ the address I had registered at. I hopefully can get someone to delete it! I will keep this one!
No symptoms, and no primary found on skin or otherwise. A solitary pulmonary nodule was found via unrelated CT scan of my chest. Monitoring revealed that the nodule grew from 6.6mm to 1.1cm within 4 months, so surgery was opted. It was the surgical pathology which revealed the cancer, and later the full pathology as melanoma.
Painless mass under jaw, likely lymph node. Fatigue. Flu like symptoms at growth. 4cm tumor under jaw and 4cm in left frontal lobe.
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. When I started this new doctor, he said "let's take a look at it", and sure enough, it was the dreaded melanoma.
Lost some of my version and pressure and pain
Really did not have any - went to see dermatologist for something completely different and was told he did not like a mole I had - biopsy done - call came in - went back for full removal of mole and surrounding area - very very lucky . . .

Adnormal mole removed 1/1000 of a millimeter before glands had to be removed

Kidney Cancer Symptoms

What Kidney Cancer Survivors said about their Cancer Symptoms.

Nothing yet, tumor is small. Found it while looking for gall stones due to unusual blood-work results. Thank goodness my doctor took the abnormal blood results seriously enough to recommend an ultrasound = early detection.
Got lucky developed multiple kidney stones. Accelerated symptoms that usually do not materialize until later stages. Blood in urine and pain.

Memory Loss, Lower Back Pain, Night Sweats, Fatigue, Confusion, Water Retention, Bloating, Toxicity Weight Gain - RCC Discovered during ultrasound for doctors theory of me having PCOS - due to my symptoms. CT Scan confirmed suspected RCC and 4 nodes on left lower lobe of lung.
None q
Shortness of breath.....seriously that was it!
None. Was diagnosed incidentally on MRI for unrelated issues.
I woke up out of a dead sleep with a terrible pain in my side. When I got up, I also had blood in my urine. I was convinced that it was a kidney stone. My husband was working out of town at the time, so I was at home alone. It continued to hurt so badly that I decided to call in sick to work and go to the emergency room at our local hospital. I was given something for pain and went for tests. Imagine my surprise and shock when the doctor came into to the room and sat down and matter of factly told me that I had a huge tumor on my kidney and that I would probably lose my kidney and have to have chemo. To say that I was stunned does not begin to describe the emotions that I felt sitting there alone as he blurted this out with no preface or softening of the blow. I called my daughters and they came to the hospital , and they called their daddy, but did not tell him what was wrong because I was afraid of him knowing that and trying to drive over 300 miles home. They called in a kidney specialist who would be coming to see me, but I had already mentally made up my mind that I would walk right out and go to the University of Alabama Birmingham and its renowned cancer center. The doctor came in and explained everything to me in depth and how he was going to attack it and get rid of it. I was completely at ease with him and he convinced me that I could beat it and that he would help me, so I stayed.I had a full, open nephrectomy to remove my left kidney. It was a long and arduos surgery, but a successful one. It was contained within the kidney and ha not reached the renal vein. I was, and am one of the lucky ones. Kidney cancer rarely has symptoms. It is usually too late when you discover it. I credit God for the fact that it was found, and that I found the right doctor and made it through. I will never be the same, that's for sure. I have serious back issues from the position I was in for the long surgery. My huge scar has adhesions and can be painful with the wrong kind of movement, but I am so fortunate. It was and is a time that strengthened my faith and reliance on God. They say that your biggest trials can be your greatest testimony, and I feel that is true. I have had the ooportunity to talk and help others as they have faced this awful disease.

Bleeding, anal pain, anaemia
pain attributed to hem or may anal fissure. Treated for hemorrhoids for approx 6 months before DX. Slight rectal bleeding, pain, pressure, difficulty with BM's. IBS type symptoms. Found lump vaginally first.
Bleeding and my anus started to feel swollen at times
thought it was hemmoroids
pain, external tumor
Some blood in stools occasionally for many months and then lower abdomen ache. I thought it was a hemorrhoid and probably would have done nothing except I was (over) due for my first colonoscopy.
Itching, blood
Rectal bleeding, bloating, long thin,bowel movements, feeling like I had a hemorrhoid
Blood in stool. Felt a lump and thought I had a hemmoriod.
Thought I had hemarhoids. Rectal pain and bleeding.
Lower back pain Vaginal pressure Low energy
I'm a runner and my run times started getting slower even though I was training harder and longer. Noticed some blood in stool, thinner stool, and felt pressure down there. Final symptom that caused me to get examined was a lump in my vagina (I thought was a cyst but was the tumor growing and invading other territory).
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.
The mass is located right inside my anal. It blocks off bowel movements. It will come out and cause severe pain and bleeding. I have to push the mass back in.
Started with itching first 6 months. I thought was a hemorrhoid. The last 6 months experienced excruciating pain after BM's and in between that lasted hours. Went to ER for severe pain was told I had anal fissures. Also my vagina swelled and started bleeding and wasn't my period. Thin stools and rectal bleeding.
rectal bleeding, diagnosed as hemorrhoid for 13 months
pain, bleeding, burning, stinging, lump, weight loss
1: Angst ridden Volley Ball sized Tumor in your ass. 2: Tendency to listen to 90's music where some forlorn chick sings about how much it sucks to be alive. (The latter dissipates slowly following treatment/surgery). 3: Mysteriously, everyone you know is no longer able to pronounce the word "Anal" except for your Doctor . 4: The eerie phenomenon which occurs when the first question EVERYONE (!!!) asks when you say you have Cancer is "Where?"
Without giving TMI lets just say being gay you can tend to "find" these things...lol!
rectal bleeding
Throbbing anal pain
a week after having completed my PSA and urine tests(5/22/18), i noticed blood in the toilet and completed the F.I.T--fecal immunochemical test.... 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.

Scan showed no spread of cancer. Results received 16 April 2018 showed that it was bone cancer; shoulder and leg amputated 17 April 2018. Surgery site became infected, which delayed chemo for a week. Chemo finished 27 July 2018. Unfortunately cancer returned - 3 weeks after chemo finished my Nan found a small lump on top of rib. Scan showed 2 nodules in my lung, too. Lump on side removed surgically (vet said it just "peeled" away, not attached to the rib). Had further chemo infusion (Doxorubicin) which finished 19 October, plus "home" chemo/meds (continuous). Scan while getting Doxorubicin showed lung nodules halved in size. Next scan on 21 December 2018 showed 1 lung nodule the same size, the other nodule had further reduced a little.

Started out as a sore throat. My PCP prescribed antibiotics with a caveat that if this didn't clear it up then contact a throat specialist. After 10 days of antibiotics no improvement so I contacted the specialist. One look confirmed to her that my left tonosil was indeed malignant. I was further referred to an Otolaryngology surgeon who performed the biopsy confirming it was cancerous. A PET Scan further revealed that one lymph node was also suspected to be malignant.
Sore throat that lasted for two weeks. Enlarged left tonsil. White patches in back of throat. Most recently discomfort in left eardrum.

It came back showing a mass on the left tonsil and base of tongue.

Mesothelioma Cancer Symptoms

What Mesothelioma Cancer Survivors said about their Cancer Symptoms.

chronic cough, shortness of breath, weakness, fatigue, anemia
Fluid filled in the lung, trouble breathing, distended stomach, nausea and fatigue (chemo)
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!

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. After 8 weeks and been flown and then chopered to 3 different hospitals they found the huge tumor was throughout my whole Left side of pelvis and grown into my sciatic nerve - it was only that pain that indicated I had something wrong with me!!
