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.

Abdominal pain, back pain, nausea, fatigue
Blood in urine and flank pain
Blood in urine, pain in flank
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.

I had a sharp pain in my back for over a year, which would go away if I took anti-inflammatory medication. In February this year, I had shortness of breath and my GP sent me for a chest xray.....where a large tumour was discovered in my chest.
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.

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 don't know what other symptoms i have had but since August of this year 2010 i had horrible bronchitis in the middle of summer it lasted for about 4 weeks horrible cough's sore throat killer headaches and lack of appetite. Since them my life has changed when my bronchitis seem to go away i had horrible heart palpitations had to go into the ER because i got so scared from my heart palpitations i was put on High blood pressure medication Norvasc. After that i was very depressed crying all the time i had to change my medication. I then went in for a physical and my doctor felt a lump on the right side of my thyroid she sent me to and ENT and he sent me to yet another ultra sound and another biopsy. I had a follow up appointment with my ENT and he told me that i had hurthle cells and needed to get it checked and removed surgically. My world felt apart and from there on i was frighten to have a surgery done. But i managed to stay strong until now that my doctor told me i had to have everything removed due to thyroid Cancer. I have been trying my best but im a complete wreck.

I couldn't swallow food for 3 months. Food seemed to get stuck. After tons of swallowing studies, I was admitted into the hospital where a cardiologist sent me for an ultrasound which found papillary thyroid cancer that had spread to my lymph nodes.
I had a mini-stroke on March 3, 2011. Dr. found a nodule on my thyroid while looking at my caratoid arteries for reason of stroke. I had a fine needle biopsy of thyroid on March 10 and was called the next day with diagnosis of thyroid cancer and a hole in my heart called PFO that caused the mini-stroke. I am thankful for the mini-stroke or I would not have known I had cancer. Looking back I did have symptoms of weight gain, dry skin, brittle nails, and feeling tired. I thought it was because I was older. LOL
Large nodule in throat. Endocrinologist says these are probably not related, but the timing is spot on (memory loss, fatigue, irregular menstrual cycle).
I had a strange pain in my throat last June. By January I had a hypersensitive gag reflex with palpable nodules in my throat.

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
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.

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 :)

Anal Cancer Symptoms

What Anal Cancer Survivors said about their Cancer Symptoms.

My GYN found a lump, which we thought was actually a large hemorrhoid. Had it surgically removed and found out that it was cancer.
external growth, painful bowel movements
Growth from anus, seepage, and discomfort and bleeding ocsassionally.
blood in stool, changes in bowel habits
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.
I thought I had the worst hemorrhoid in America--popping out like a Jack-in-the-box, along with some bleeding.
A "skin tag" on my anal area. My OB Gyn found it. Lethargic, tons of itching.

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).

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!

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.
