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.

Blood Cancer
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 :)

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.
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.

Anal Cancer Symptoms

What Anal Cancer Survivors said about their Cancer Symptoms.

Lump protruding from anus
Pain, itchiness, some bleeding. Thought for sure I had hemorrhoids.
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.
Bleeding, assumed haemorrhoids sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy did not detect cancer
Just once I felt a little pain i my butt, first I thought it was a hemorrhoid, but it felt different, so I went to see the Dr. and then my journey as a cancer patient began.
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.

Bleeding from rectum while running.

Pain at tumor site, bleeding, fullness in rectum, urgency
Trouble going for 4 months after big move and start of new job. Doctors thought it was stress related. Gastro doc finally did a physical exam.
'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.
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?"

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!

Growing sore on back left side of tongue
My daughter Sarah noticed a sore on her tongue. Thought it was from biting it. she went to a doctor. He diagnosed her with thrush, gave her meds and sent her on her way. Meds did nothing.. she went back to the same doctor for a 2nd and 3rd time. He told her there was nothing more he could do for her and to stop wasting both his and her time. My daughter lived with this sore on her tongue for over a year.She woke up one morning in horrible pain and her tongue was black. She went to see her personal doctor, She sent Sarah to a ear,nose and throat doctor. That next day he did a biopsy on her tongue. The day after that 2-4-2010 she called me and told me she had cancer. This cancer spread to her lymph nodes then to her lungs. She passed away on 12-26th-2010.
Although when I was diagnosed, I was mentally and physically, the healthiest I had ever been, had a long standing habit internalizing my stress and of biting my tongue in my sleep. I had developed a sore patch on the right hand side of my tongue and went to my doctor who didn't think it was anything to be concerned about but I knew something wasn't right in my body so I insisted on a biopsy.. thank god I did because we caught it early.

Weight loss, Cough, Nausea
Dizziness, Vertigo, chest pains, unstoppable cough, night sweats, Anemia, and unexplained weight loss (which for me was like WOW, I think I lost around 20+ because I didn't know I had cancer around this time when I notice this symptom in particular.)

Swollen Lymph Node on left collar bone area. Weakness, fatigue.
really itchy skin, it started in my hands and feet and after a couple months, everywhere. Some night sweats & fevers. No unexplained weight loss...ripped off.
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.

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. An ultra sound showed a massive tumor on my right ovary (20 cm). During the week it took to see a specialist, it grew to 44 cm. Surgery took place the next day and it was found that the point of origin was the appendix.

I am 38 female, mother of 5 boys (ages 7,9,11, 14, 16), breastfed 4 of them for almost a year each ( I mention this because nursing baby is supposed to help decrease risks of breast cancer, though not other cancers), have lots of cancer on moms side but I am adopted so I don't know much more and nothing of dad's side, Been feeling so sick and beaten down for a while now, Pain in neck at base of skull, dizziness, night sweats for many months now, migraines, nausea, pain in right breast (lumps) on lower right ribs (lumps) right wrist (ganglion cyst, non cancerous but hurts) burning sensation on skin in same specific spots on inside of left knee and left inside ankle (feels like on top of skin, not deep) vision issues (slight and random), aching in back between shoulder blades (feels like a huge weight of pressure) out of breath easy, muscle spasms under chin on right side, spasms in abdomen on right, spasms in back on right lower side, severe (like, stabbing) pain in groin on left side of pubic area and inside thigh groin area (cannot have sex, hurts groin terribly so that considered ER) aches in limbs then fades into tingles in feet and hands, clearing throat of thick mucus all the time, pain in arm at shoulder, elbow and wrist (on right) that then radiates and sudden weak feeling like I could fall over, so tired I could fall asleep anytime, so tired I am drowsy, have trouble working and sitting still without dozing no matter how I try (drink coffee, over the counter energy pills do NOTHING to bring me up to feeling normal at all, Trouble staying asleep (wake many times through the night (the sweating may have to do with that because it makes my sheets cold) during the day, freezing cold so bad I twitch and tremble, twitch terribly when trying to fall asleep, bad nightmares, pain wrapping around right ear from front to my neck, lost weight fast (from 158 to 120 in two months and another 13 over time but not trying at all) I have anxiety issues so I am not sure if it's related but anxiety has gone through the roof these past few months, much confusion and short term memory lately is almost gone at times (I have gotten to a point that before I walk into another room, I write down what I am doing) I am honestly a bitch lately (sorry) as I am so anxious and waiting for tests and word is freaking me out because I feel terrible all the time. I don't have a diagnosis, only what we are trying to rule out and what is can possibly be. I just want to know so I can know what I have ahead of me. I'd like to get some feedback from others.
