My boyfriend thought his shoulder pain was due to pulling some muscles. After a couple of months of it getting worse...he thought ...oh my Lord...I bet I have a torn rotor-cuff. We only wish it was so... 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??? I started logging this "journey" from MY perspective. The thoughts, feeling and poetry from someone who loves someone...who has cancer.
He has had enlarged lymph nodes, back pain due to cancer in his spine, and cough/difficulty breathing due to lymphangitic spread. Those symptoms are currently under control due to treatment. Currently, he experiences lower body/leg pain with no known cause.
I had suffered from right side pain in my rib area when I coughed or sneezed for about 3 years until my cancer was finally diagnosed. We looked at EVERYTHING else, but no one would have thought I could have lung cancer.
Initially I had pain in my knees, back, and hips. My primary physician believed I was starting to develop osteoporosis and arthritis, so I began taking Boniva and other vitamins. My joint pain had not subsided, and about two months later, I developed a deep cough and had difficulty swallowing. My daughter rushed me to the ER, and after I had a chest x-ray, I also had to get a PET scan and MRI. I knew my outlook was not good before we even got the results back. The oncologist found two spots on my lung, and the cancer had spread to two lymph nodes on the other side of my chest wall. Like is said- not good news, but I have an amazing team of physicians, and a supportive family to help me through this. I couldn't go through this without them. My family gives me something to live for!
Fatigue, headaches due to brain mets
Sickly for several years, always feeling out of sorts, never wanting to do anything or go anywhere (a little rough on the social life); stomach problems, body aches, infections, fevers, headaches, seriously quick failing eyesight & night blindness (this happened during the six weeks of fever)...ALWAYS sick (ALWAYS whiney)...went through the wringer with many a (mis)diagnosis: influenza bugs, mercury poisoning, allergies, fibromyalgia, blood poisoning, diverticulitis, depression, ulcerative colitis, dysentery, psychosomatic disorders, osteopenia, hypercalcemia, hyperparathyroidism, age, on and on...you start to wonder yourself...not that all diagnoses were incorrect but...missed A LOT of work, at one point a six-week stint with a constant high fever. I was taking so many different antidepressants, antibiotics and other medications, I was beginning to wonder why I still felt so bad when I could barely feel at all... My third general physician sent me for my annual chest x-ray as I was a smoker. A small spot was found on my right upper lung. Referred to a pulmonologist, a CT scan was performed revealing a 1.6cm nodule with stellate margins. A Pet scan was performed revealing several areas of concern in both lungs. The pulmonologist recommended surgery and referred me to a surgeon.

All of the sudden I just couldn't walk without horrible hip pain. Thought it was from when the dog bowled me over outside in the winter time. Took 3 days off of work as I could barely walk to one room to another. Urgent care said it was muscular and 'stretched me out'. Likewise my own doctor a week later pulled and twisted my leg and that and Prednisone got me back walking again with an Xray and MRI scheduled for 2 weeks down the road.
Thought I had strep throat - face swollen - large lump on coller bone - had hoarse voice
I discouverd an Enlarged node under my rt chin painless, Node removed, 2 positive reports for Peripheral T Cell Lymphoma. 1 neg. did ct scan and pet scan found node under arm and a few little one here and there, removed node from under arm neg for Peripheral T Cell Lymphoma 2009, do another scan others all disappear so no treatment they don't think I have it. After a bout with bronchites in Dec 2009 in Jan 2010 several nodes show up in rt shoulder. Another removal this time 3 positive reports for Peripheral T Cell Lymphoma. Sent to spec. at Seattle Care Alliance They say they can't believe I have it I should be dead or very very ill.

I suddenly had severe abdominal pain and 103 fever. After a week of antibiotic treatment for suspected (never found) GI infection, an ultrasound revealed an 8 cm mass near the ovary. The mass was removed during a complete hysterectomy and found to be lymphoma. PET scan showed 6 other lymph node involvement including the bone. Once the mass was removed, I have had no other symptoms!
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.
Chris had a bad cough for a long time combined with rash on his legs. Slowly after loss of weight, feeling tired, bed sweats and fevers investigations took place. Many times he was told he was fine and it was not cancer. After a battle, he was diagnosed at stage 4. Underwent chemo for 8 sessions. Managed to pull back cancer but 20% remains in his bone marrow.

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.

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.

Fatigue,shortness of breath nd paleness
Probly the whole summer before my diagnosis i began to feel fatigued. sometimes id experience feeling like i had low blood sugar and would have to sit down suddenly because i felt so awful. as it progressed i just dragged and dragged. at the time i worked at taco bell and was told i was the best worker but by the time i quit i certainly had dropped out of that position. its not that i was lazy but i was just so exhausted and had to call off alot. finaly i just didnt feel good. it was a jewish holiday and i was supposed to go to the celebration that night but i stayed home instead. i called off work for two weeks and only got worse. it got so bad that i spent the entire day and night sleeping. i was barely eating or drinking. i remember once putting a grape in my mouth and falling asleep immediately after. LOl or the time my friend called me and i asked him to hold a sec. i blew my nose forgot he was on the phone and fell asleep. 20 min later i woke up and saw he was still on the phone. lol i finaly saw a dr and they told me i had strep throat. after taking anti biotics for 10 days and no change i went to the ER. i was dangerously dehydrated, anemic, and had huge lumps on my shins that was tender like a bruise and very feverish. Ill always remember that day cuz i went into that ER and never came back out. it felt like forever waiting on different test results. when the doctor finaly came in and told us i didnt really understand. in fact i didnt even know that leukemia was a cancer. treatments started so fast it all blacked out and i dont really remember any of it. but there was my symptoms.

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 :)
Mike's lymph nodes in his neck were swollen and doctors thought at first it was something else. But, after a couple of months, Mike knew something wasn't right. So, a surgeon removed one of the lymph nodes and came out of surgery and told me he was 99% sure Mike had some type of cancer. Later, it was discovered that he had cancerous lymph nodes not only in his neck but 2 other places on his body. The doctors at Vanderderbilt then determined it was AML.

Have experienced bright red blood from time to time with no other symptoms. After talking to doctor, I dismissed this as nothing to worry about. About one year ago I discovered a small bump inside my anus. Doctor thought it was a hemorrhoid and prescribed suppositories and fiber supplement. At this point I had experienced no pain, just occasional bright red blood. As time went on, the bump became larger and harder. Then, I experienced itching and soreness after bowel movements. Thanks to "Dr. google", I decided that my hemorrhoid had thrombosed (clotted). I returned to my doctor, endured a painful exam and she referred me to a surgeon (still thinking it was a hemorrhoid and that I probably needed hemorrhoidectomy). Upon examination, the surgeon told me it felt a little harder than a hemorrhoid should be and he wanted to biopsy it while I was under anesthesia. The biopsy showed "invasive non-keratinizing sqamous cell carcinoma, moderate to poorly differentiated. No lymphovascular invasion identifed.

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!

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.

Lump on lower back

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!!
