He said that and I about fell off the chair. Could the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> be related to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>? Breathing never laboured, no coughing up blood. Though I am tired all the time and have gained a little weight over the past year...
I've been being treated by my chiro for this for the past 3 months. While it has gotten alot better, I still experience dull <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and burning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> radiating from the neck to shoulders. I also now have pain in what seems to be my right shoulder joint, really noticeable when I try to raise my right arm. However, I have full range of motion. I am experiencing other symptoms as well that are leading me to believe there is something else going on.
I would like to discuss few really important points on lung cancer. please read below.
It doesn't sound like the cancer stated in her lungs, if that is truew its not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> but possibly bone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>, which not to frighten you but you should know all you can to make your mom as comfortable as possible. Alot of pain killers, because it is very painful, I'am sure the drs. would have suggested treatment?? If it was of benefit?? What do they say?? You have to ask ALOT of questions.

I again went to the doc. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> tends to move around down my arms, both sides of my chest, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, and sometimes in my back. I thought it was just stress. I had a stress test done, came back fine. I had an echo done and they found that I have mitral valve regurgitation. She just put me on Toprol XL to help with the regurgitation. Well the pain in the chest, shortness of breathe and dizziness got really bad so my doc ordered a Chest MRI.
I don't know where else to post. My grandfather has had a lump on his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> for about a week now. He went to the ear, nose and throat doctor yesterday and found that his tongue has also began to turn black. the doctor sent him to have a catscan of his throat and blood work and made him come back today and said that there surgeon would sit in on the appointment. At the appointment today the surgeon, after looking at all the results, would not touch him.
Sent by Penelope504 1 minute ago February 2, 2008 I turned 64 a few months ago and I must still be loved. A year ago I was given about 4 months to live with a diagnosis of stage 4 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> with two metastases in my brain. I did not have any recognizable symptoms until I had a major seizure and was hospitalized, given CAT scans and x-rays. the lung tumor didn't show but I was sent to a different island with more sophisticated imaging equipment.

Given peak flow device was 350-400 but now 550-600. However have noticed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in upper outer part of my arm and back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> being much more acute if i tip my head back/to side to one particular spot. At other times my upper arm can seem to ache but someimes think its because i'm thinking about it as well. If not moving then no pain at all. No chest pains but have become very aware of this arm/shoulder/neck pain over last 2 weeks.
I guess the reason for my concern with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> is because my mother and a sister died from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> (not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>). Currently two of my sisters are battling cancer (lung and breast) and I have two brothers and another sister that had cancer in the past but are survivors. I does tend to raise your anxiety when they find something during an exam. I will take your advise try not to think about it. Again, thanks for your help. This is a great forum.
I do have a history of colon cancer stage 4 back in August 24, 2004 and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> tumor was found on my rt upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> in Aug. 2006. I have been treated w/both chemo and radiation and had my last PET Scan this past Oct. 2007 and found that it has destroyed tumor and/or any other cancer cells. Doing well. Today, I feel very depress, still feeling discomfort lower neck area in the back and head area. My blood pressure was slightly high yesterday 140/99 but today is 120/74.
I would doubt that you have lung cancer now... you are young and have only been smoking for 2 years... that is awesome that you are quiting be strong and dont give into the cravings!!!! get some packs of gum or candy to have when you feel like you need a smoke...
I am panicking at the moment as my friend's husband died of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> and he had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in his left shoulder and xrays didn't show this up until it was too late. When I was diagnosed with COPD in 2007 I had an enhanced CT. scan which didn't show anything, except for emphysemia which I knew about.

Unfortunately, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> often produces no symptoms until it is at an advanced stage. Symptoms of lung cancer include shortness of breath, persistent cough, coughing up blood, pain when coughing, fatigue, weight loss, loss of appetite, hoarseness, chest pain, recurring bouts of bronchitis and/or pneumonia. Less common symptoms which are usually associated with advanced lung cancer are difficulty swallowing, swelling of the face, swelling in the neck, pain under the ribs on the right side.
I know I will eventually calm down, but it just scrares me so. My mother died from Breast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>. She went through hell before she died. It had a huge impact on my life when I was in my mid 20's. I am not 44 and have a son about the same age as I was when my mom was diagnosed. I worry more about my loved ones than myself really. Here i go - convincing myslef i have cancer when it seems less that a 1% chance that i do. At least that is what i read.
I'm worried I have a brain tumor. My dad just had surgery for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>, so maybe I'm overworried but this just does not feel right. Please help.
At the moment I still feel chest discomfort and sometimes the back. Does this mean I'm going to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>? I have never smoke or hardly ever drink alcohol. I don't have family members that have had or do have cancer. I'm worried and frigthened that I'm not so lucky. I also had a positive skin test for TB back in summer 2005 and have been on inH and vitamin b6 treatment since August 27th 2007 and should finish the treatment in late May.
I have lost my mother at the age of 37 from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>. I have been a smoker for 31 yrs. My pulmonary Dr. I seen said that it is too small to biopsy or cut out, but that it is probably cancer. Should I be worried? What should I do? I am going to see an oncologist. But since all this I have had migraines since December 31st. that I can not get rid of and swollen glands in my neck. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

1 mnth ago I went to er with severe chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> unable to take a deep breath, upon ct scan w/contrast multiple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> nodules were noted in the right lung largest one 6mm with slightly spiculated margin. went to pulmo took antibiotics for 2 wks went for repeat ct. which showed no differences other than another nodule on the left lung. what is the chance this could be metastatic cancer? Dr would like to follow-up in 4 months. I am apprehensive about waiting this long.
Would you see on a US for thyroid some other type of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>, like ie throat or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> or something? This is how nervous I am. I never hurt this bad. I just want to understand. I just hurt bad.
Shortly after that I started developing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my armpits and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, along with tightness in my lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> at times. there are no visible lumps, just pain where lymph nodes should be. This went on for a couple of months and then subsided a bit. I was given a couple of courses of antibiotics, but I'm not sure if they helped or the symptoms just calmed down. the groin thing never went away completely but was more mild.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> behind the eyes, muscle twitching, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> on back of head, cough, strange weasing noise when couching (like rattling)... i saw a neurologist... he did an ekg and a cervical spine mri. he noticed some mild neuralgia in legs but he said that it is very likely that it wa caused by the chemotherapy i had been on previously... i also saw a internal pshysician who did an echocardiogram and told me i had no heart problems... finally everything just got real bad and i got this intense throat pain .
It came back that she has a 7cm mass in her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span>... Dr. said it is most likely <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>.... I was just wondering if...it could possibly be anything else. She is however seeing a respitory specialist tommorow and will most likely be having a biopsy performed asap. Everything is moving so fast...She got the results yesterday and seeing the specialist tommow... I am very scared of the outcome... Does anybody have any info on mass...or the size of or anything else????
A repeat CT scan should definitely be done along with tests for tuberculosis and PET scan for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lung</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> if the CT scan does not show resolution of the inflammation. Please seek another opinion too from a chest specialist. Hope this helps. Take care!
