Avatar f tn I am awaiting histology on a suspected ovarian cancer. I have bilateral cysts one is 10cm the other about 5cm. They are complex cysts. My ca125 is 133. The specialists have told me that they cannot tell me if the cysts are cancerous until they have the histology. I can see no logical reason that the cysts could be anything else. I do not think I have endometriosis (mispelt) can you give me anything hopeful to indicate this is not cancer or am I clutching at straws?
1506428 tn?1290113504 Ok...here's the deal...I'm 20 years old and I think I have colon cancer. Now before you roll your eyes and immediately start throwing statistics at me, hear me out. I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease when I was 15 years old. I have been on Remicade for about four years and recently the effects seem to be diminishing.So, I went in for a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy. They found three small polyps in my cecum (1-2mm) and one mid-sized polyp in my mid ascending colon (6-8mm).
Avatar n tn I am told that polyps grow very slowly. No family history of colon cancer, my parents, aunts and uncles have all been screened and are clear. My grandmother did have several polyps removed but not until she was in her 50s or 60s and has never had them reoccur. I don't drink, smoke, eat relatively healthy and am not obese.

Avatar f tn //www.cancer.org/cancer/bladder-cancer/detection-diagnosis-staging/staging.html On a side note, PET/CT is rarely used to stage bladder cancer. On a PET/CT, the urinary system including bladder normally appears black (metabolic uptake), obscuring everything within it, making it difficult to detect underlying pathology. PET/CT is used more for staging/restaging lymphoma, breast cancer, etc.
Avatar f tn Hi There so what I understand is that you have an unstaged ovarian cancer You need to seek a consultation with a gynecologic oncologist The big question is , do you need a second surgery to sort out what stage your cancer is. If all biopsies are negative and you have a stage I cancer, your prognosis is excellent. For a tiny cancer within a confined benign tumor, it is unclear whether the addition of chemotherapy reduces the risk of recurrence.
Avatar f tn does coughing and wheezing more {as asmatic anyway} have any bearings on colon cancer
Avatar f tn Histology report diagnosis was moderate nonspecific inflammation, random colon biopsies. Micro--Sections show pieces of colon mucosa with moderate lymph-plasmacytic infiltration of lamina propria. Significant crypt distortion is not identified. Thickening of collagen band or transmucosal inflammation is absent. Occasional reactive lymphoid aggregates are present. I also have psoriais and psoriatic arthritis. Abdominal symptoms worsen with menstrual cycle.
135691 tn?1271097123 I have taken care of many wonderful women with advanced ovarian cancer who have a low grade histology. I would say their therapies were all individual. As a general rule, I try surgery when feasible. I have seen good response and stabilization of disease with tamoxifen and arimidex when the tumors have been estrogen receptor positive. I have not been impressed that antiangiogenesis agents are helpful for these types of tumors.
Avatar f tn Colon cancer can be extremely hereditary! My mother-in-law has 4th stage colon cancer and it was recommended to my husband and his sister to have a colonoscopy at 40 years old. He did and they found 1 small (3mm) sized tumor that was found to be pre-cancerous. His sister's result was clear. So, that's 50% chance right there. I agree with quinroxanne, be very vigilant! Good luck.
Avatar n tn Asians, women, non-smokers, and those with adenocarcinoma histology. This drug still has been found to benefit males, smokers, and those with squamous cell histology, but to a lesser extent.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with colon cancer 8 years ago and they removed 19 inches of my colon at that time. Now, I had a PET scan done a few weeks ago and a spot (size of a lima) bean was found. I was sent to an orthopaedic doctor and he has discussed the scans with 4 radiologist and they will not commit 100% it is not cancer. So, now they ahve requested a CT/biopsy after a consultation with an Interventional radiologist next week. Do you feel this could be cancer?
Avatar m tn I wouldnt worry about colon cancer. From what you are saying it doesnt seem likely. My initial thought is that you have developed a food allergy. I suggest going to an allergy specialist and have them run a test. Until then, try keeping a food journal of everything you eat and drink, as well as how you feel and bowel movements. See if you notice feeling bad after you eat certain types of foods.
Avatar m tn My husband's 1st wife had colon cancer. It was discovered too late, & she passed away at the age of 24 saddly. Your symptoms don't sound like what my husband told me she had. She started having symptoms in her late teens... chronic constipation, stomach pain, etc. One day while she was away at college, she started throwing up really hard & thought she had a virus. She was staying really tired & just couldn't shake it.
Avatar m tn my husband has colon cancer and first pet scan came back 3.9 had it 2yrs before first visit to doctors how bad is 3.
Avatar n tn I took her to the doctor, but they are referring her to a specialist for a CT scan and a colonoscopy. Does this sound like colon cancer? If so, what should I expect? Is there anything else that it could be? I'm really worried about her.
Avatar n tn Can you describe the pain you feel? Abdominal pain is rare in colon cancer. Cancer of the colon and rectum can exhibit itself in several ways such as: bleeding from your rectum or blood mixed with your stool; fatigue and pale skin; abdominal distension; abdominal pain; persistent nausea or vomiting; unexplained weight loss; change in frequency or character of stool; sensation of incomplete evacuation after a bowel movement or rectal pain. The duration of symptoms usually takes 14 weeks.
