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.
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.

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

Didn't even know where thyroid was until ENT doctor told me my thyroid was enlarged and boy was it. 2 large nodules. They were not cancerous though. Weird.
None! A completely accidental finding on an MRI for an unrelated issue.
Found a lump at the front of my throat. When I look back now, the chronic inflammation of my wrists and ankles was a sign that something wasn't right. My heart was also racing, I lost a lot of hair the year before, my joints and muscles were sore all the time. Still suffering from major swelling in my wrists...
A year ago an ultrasound on my back revealed 2 nodules on my thyroid but 2 doctors refused to do further testing, "because that's never anything." Not even a "let's keep an eye on it." Later, I developed a raspy/hoarse voice and a small bump on my throat. Saw my ENT. The hoarseness didn't alert me before but it's worse since fna

Thyroid had numerous nodules that had become larger over time. A needle biopsy wasn't possible due to the number of nodules and the depth.
Before I got diagnosed I was feeling very fatigued and my heart rate was very high. The only reason I was going to the doctor was to get vaccinations for school. I told him about my symptoms and he said he thought it was Hyperthyroidism. He checked my levels and everything came back fine and did for months. My doc kept checking my levels because he was positive it was my thyroid. One day my levels came back abnormal and we went from there! They did an Ultrasound and found a nodule...then did a biopsy. The ENT told me the biopsy looked a little suspicious and he wanted to take the left side of my thyroid out. When he did the surgery he decided to take my whole thyroid. Which now I am glad!!
Lump in throat, swollen thyroid. Since I am a control freak, I pushed both my daughter and the doctors to investigate.
Felt pressure on throat like "tight turtleneck", July 2nd. Dr. didn't feel anything so probably just stress or acid reflux. Two weeks later could feel lump on right side. Ultrasound confirmed 2cm mass on August 2, 2010. Fine-Needle Biopsy on September 2, 2010 and the "call" on September 10, 2010.

I didn't recognize them as indicating cancer: some trouble swallowing, turtlenecks bothered me, a little hoarseness.
None! I actually went in to see my NP about something on my foot, I complained about having had a fever so she checked my glands and found a concerning lump on the left side of my neck. In hindsight though, I think it probably caused my dizziness and migraines all this time, I just never knew.
Didn't have any symptoms
Not many - Found out after TT that I have Hashimoto's, but was not hypo or hyper before surgery. The cancerous nodule was on the isthmus of my thyroid, so it was not visible or palpable.

Fatique, respiratory systems, fever and night sweats.
tired, lethargic, flu-like symptoms, bruising, loss of appetite, dizziness and passing out
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 :)

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.

What Anal Cancer Survivors said about their Cancer Symptoms.

Thought it was hemorrhoids, started small and kept getting bigger, tried the herbal and otc stuff, still kept getting bigger, very little bleeding, pain as it got bigger. When i finally seen the doc (4/15/11) She said right off 'this not a hemroid'. She did a biopsy.
Without giving TMI lets just say being gay you can tend to "find" these things...lol!
Blood in stools, lower right abdominal pain. Frequent bouts of diarrhea.
Bleeding and discomfort after a BM.
bleeding, fatigue, bowel changes
* Summer 2003: basic hemorrhoids * Dec 2008: colonoscopy clear but GP booked me to see 'roid specialist Jul 29/09 since they were growing (internally and externally) * Feb/Mar/09: increased bleeding, metallic smell; fecal leaking; itching, burning; pressure on anus * Requested first possible cancellation (earlier than Jul 29) with specialist
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.
blood in stool, changes in bowel habits
Lump protruding from anus
'Hemorroids' not responding to over the counter medication, general discomfort, small lump. I had an abnormal Pap test result in 1991 (CIN cell change, not cancerous) and had laser treatment. Given the link with CIN, HPV and anal cancer it seems that this could be related and been dormant for many years.
Mild rectal bleeding that I thought was my colitis. Had the routine colonoscopy 12/7 when md found a "flat" polyp.
bleeding
A "skin tag" on my anal area. My OB Gyn found it. Lethargic, tons of itching.
thought I had a bleeding hemoroid, had a test through the government, told me I was fine, pushed for a colonoscopy, here I am now!
bleeding, bloating, thought they were hemorrhoids and treated for hemorrhoids for about 5 months
Bleeding. Bloating. Sitting was painful. hemorrhoids painful. Back pain
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.
bleeding, thought it was a 'roid.
bright red blook on the toilet tissue several times over one month's time
anal itching, small hard bump, thought it was a hemmroid, flat shaped bowel movments, gas and bloating, night sweats, anxiety, just a sense of NOT well-being.
I thought I had hemorrhoids, internal and external. Had pain and bleeding. Went to my GP back in Feb for a pap and asked her to take a look- She said that it looked sore and gave me a surgeons name and she did not indicate that she thought it could be something more serious. As I did not want to have hemorrhoid surgery, I put off seeing the surgeon until Nov as I could no longer stand the pain. As soon as he took a look he knew it was cancer.
Chronological order: Blood-tinged drainage for months, then heavy bleeding with BMs-which I "hoped", for months, would go away. A hard skin tag, change in stool appearance, increased difficulty defecating. PAIN!
Itching, lump in anus.
Presumed hemorrhoid pain and bleeding for several months
Originally 2 small hard lumps on the verge of the anus - itchy No blood, no constipation, no pain. Left for 1 year by medical profession. Since biopsy have grown and bleed and hurt. Inguinal lymph node swollen

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.

Swollen, sore throat, extreme coughing.
I just thought I had a sore throat
NONE - Tumor discovered following routine examination/prescription for sore throat.
Hard mass under right side of jaw. Thought was a badly swollen lymph node, as a result of a possible infection from a broken tooth. Suffered a stroke in my sleep, which prompted me to visit a doctor (first since '93), who sent me to the ER. The cancer was discovered during testing, and -- perhaps fortunately, because of treatment response results in studies -- related to having contracted HPV about 25years ago. Virus is long gone, but it was able to tweak some DNA while using my body as a guest house.

Lymph node above collar bone.
Swollen lymphnodes in neck
Weight loss vomting coughing can't lye flat fatigue
right supraclavicular mass
I was tired all the time, but blamed it on being the mother of three small children and working 2nd shift. I stopped playing with my kids outside or even going outside with them. I'd let them play while I dozed in and out. I also had asthma-like symptoms for over a year and was actually diagnosed with asthma...or should I say "misdiagnosed" with asthma. I had shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing jags. I had pains in my neck, which I thought were kinks and suddenly one day when I started rubbing my neck on January 21, 2009 it felt like a huge bulge. That whole day I had a horrible feeling after that and finally called to make an appointment with my doctor.
Lump in the side of my neck and fatigue.
I found a lump above my left collar bone. I had hives on my forearms and occasional night sweats.

I first noticed a lump on the left side of my neck and pursued it, finally having a different lymph node removed and classified as cancerous.
I actually didn't have any signs or symptoms. I woke up one day with a lump on my neck and we went from there.
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.

Appendiceal Cancer Symptoms

What Appendiceal Cancer Survivors said about their Cancer Symptoms.

Over a period of 3 months, my weight began to shift. Everything was moving north instead of south. I chalked it up to aging and odd things the body did.

Surgery took place the next day and it was found that the point of origin was the appendix.
