Common Questions and Answers about How fast does throat cancer grow


Avatar n tn about the question how fast endometrioma grow??? i have also endometrioma in my left ovary the size is 8cm x 9cm and it was found last feb 2005 and I dont believe that I have cyst. But when I went to another doctor last week feb 4,2008 just for a infertility check up, the doctor says that i need to undergo transvagina ultrasound to determine why it is difficult for me to become pragnant. But the result of my ultrasound is the same in my last ultrasound 3 years ago.
Avatar n tn hi,I'd like to know how quickly does throat cancer(located on the vocal cord) grows.My mother has been diagnosed with this,and well,the doctor told her she's still in the early stages,but she needs to wait about a month before she can get an appointement with the specialist(who is off on vacation). Im wondering how much it will grow from now until a month...what is the growth rate of tumors in this area?
656157 tn?1224641403 Is the other half removed soley for cancer tracking purposes or do they believe that cancer can also grow on the other side as well. Still somewhat confused? going in December... love to hear different insight.
Avatar f tn lets see, lung cancer, throat cancer, esphogeal cancer, sinus cancer, tonsil cancer, lymphoma, melanoma, bone cancer, etc...the list continues. I know I'm acting crazy. When I think about it rationally, all of this just sounds absurd. But I can't stop. My wife just tunes me out now. Its got even worse after our son was born because of my fear of leaving my wife and child alone when I die...of cancer.
Avatar f tn does what I have sound like oral cancer and could it become advanced in the matter of months? How fast does a cancerous lump grow and how in the world is anyone suppose to tell the difference between a cancerous lump, a tori, a cyst or a saliva stone?
Avatar n tn Whoa - ABL!!! "no one here knows a thing about Iodine" That's pretty bold. I don't know what makes you such a expert on the matter - and I sincerely hope it is more than just internet research with a statement like that. I do not profess to be an expert of any kind... I am always learning... You might be interested in what I have learnt today.. As a nursing student I just got this semester's text book on critical care nursing.
192055 tn?1263559137 Also I have an endescopy on March 4th to look down my throat. Not a nice procedure but I've been terrified this is lung or throat cancer so it will be good to confirm or deny it. Good luck people.
694885 tn?1232653548 I started to get the breathing issues, not being able to swallow as I would choke on food, and my voice was down to a husky whisper with me stopping to suck in huge lungfuls of air like an emphysema patient. My goitre grew fast too had cancer cells in it...and the operation itself is equivalent to a down payment on a house...BUT...
312144 tn?1262230591 I asked him how he planned to do the surgery and he told me he does the traditional cut. He explained that way may be best so he could place a drain to control a possible hematoma since I have developed them after every surgery so far. He walked me to the surgery scheduler's office and chatted with her while I waited and she asked me to come in and told me he wanted the first available date.
517119 tn?1285874992 I just want to live long for my children. The dr says he thinks I will be ok. What does that mean? Is it a 50/50 shot? I know- be positive - don't look at the negative. Just be glad I found it right? I just can't believe that in a matter of a week that my life has turned upside down. That I am fighting for my life. It doesn't seem real. I can't believe that the breasts that fed my children could betray me. So weird.
Avatar n tn Day 15, wow!! I feel just a little bit better, right now. Someone said yesterday that the cravings still happen but they pass each day quicker than the day before. I think that is true. I agree with yesterdays threads were wonderful and yes there was a purpose...I have been reading these for 2 weeks now and never read anything about feeling like a "super mom or dad" and the fear of losing that when the "parents little helpers" are gone. Lifeisbetter....
Avatar f tn I have terriable legg cramps, sweets and I can not sleep. How long does this last? It is driving me crazy. I do not have any cravings for the vicodin. Just the withdraws are killing me. I have been drinking water and taking baths. But it doesn't help any. I'm thinking about going to the emergency room and see if they can help me with my withdraws. I have heard about a pill that helps, but then I'm scared of taking another pill as well. Please let me know how long this is going to last..........
Avatar f tn lots of thick saliva after I eat/drink 2.sticky gelatin like mucus in back of throat constantly, it makes my throat is closing or swelling, I am allways am chooing gum trying to make more salivia so I can swallow 3.burping/presure in esophagus while eating 4. weight gain/upper stomach fullness/bloating feeling 5.tierd all the time 6. feeling of throat swellig and supper dry mouth after brushing my teeth?
Avatar n tn Meantime I went to an ENT who told me after scoping my throat that I have a white mucus coating my throat. Does that sound like candida? He said that I was not producing enough saliva and prescribed a very expensive medicine( Evoxac) that I could not manage. He came to this conclusion in 5 mins. I now have another appt. with a highly recommended ENT. I also have a low producing thyroid which I just began to treat. Please tell me what you think. I am going nuts!
Avatar n tn Eat less of it and see what happens
490746 tn?1233256808 I knew the cancer was spreading because you can feel it in your neck as it grows and pulls on your neck muscels like a pinching kinda of feeling and the pressure on the colarbone as the cancer makes its way down. My understanding is that benign nodels will not grow like this. The one nodule I had that was DX benign had only grown .3cm after 12 weeks and that could have just been a difference in messurment method from the 1st time. So now I am waiting for the Doc.
Avatar n tn I just got off the phone with my breast surgeon who verified the good news that I heard from the radiologist yesterday. I am impressed with how fast he got back to me as I am always reading posts about how long everyone's wait seems to be. He said not to come back for six months and then to schedule a bi-lateral mammogram. Boninclyde, he did not suggest either an MRI or a scan. I remeber when I was first diagnosed he suggested one, but later changed his mind and said it was not necessary.
Avatar f tn If it doesn't happen when I'm extremely worked up, but does happen apparently randomly, how can it be caused by anxiety?" But I don't know. Do you have any thoughts on this issue? Maybe subconscious anxiety can provoke the symptoms, if there is such a thing as subconscious anxiety. I'm sorry to hear about what you went through as a child, but it is very interesting to see the connection that you have made between that and your panic attacks.
Avatar f tn 80 speckled homogenous pattern. My b12 is low to normal range. I understand I have to take the B12, but does the rest mean anything. I know postive ANA could point to lupus. What else could it be? I am gonna try to setup an appt to get the rest of the results, and see if I can get any further in this program. Thanks to some other support I have received I will be calling around to a few places to see if I can get some more help in my journey to answers.
Avatar m tn I also am very concerned about throat cancer. I am a non-smoker, but my grandpa did die of the disease so it may be hereditary. All of my symptoms seems to parralell with throat cancer symptoms. All I can do at this point is pray and wait on my appointment.
Avatar n tn I try coughing or drinking but the throat noise does not go away or even change it. I can tell it is not in my lungs, but in my throat. I can breathe shallow and minimize the noise but I feel out of breath then. My daughters say this wheeze is not my snore.They say I wheeze before the snore on intake and then exhale. I hear the noise during the day but I really have to listen to hear it as there is always too much back ground noise.
Avatar f tn Do I have more risk of it turning into an arrhythmia that my heart won't get out of? How can I tell if I am having a pvc or a pac? My holter showed 13 pac's and 2 pvc's but I always feel the pause and then a hard thump. Why do they happen more when I run up the stairs or bend over too quickly or am carrying a heavy load? Worried sick.
Avatar m tn Try to keep a log of what your dog does every day. Does he stop tripping one day? Does he manage to stand all through dinner one day? The progress is very slow. But if it's just drug side effects, it will get better. Be understanding if your dog begins to soil the house. Get some baby gates and put him some place safe (we blocked our dog in the kitchen). Laminated fabric is also handy to have. And hang in there! It will pass, and you'll get your friend back within a month.
Avatar n tn Can someone answer this. How long does hydrocodine show up in your system for a drug test. I take this drug for the pain I get with Lymes Disease. I'm starting a new job and they will ask for a drug test. How soon do I need to get off of them so it don't show up on my test. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I also got a swollen throat since two months ago. They should really warn on how contagious it can get and how fast it spreads and how much it hurts the itching and swelling. my vagina looks very red. I went to a gyno and burned them off but they are still here. The first wart came after my pregnancy since your immune systems lowers because of my c section. since the first wary it spread reaaly quick from my labia to my anus and inside in only a matter of 4 months.
1247040 tn?1268875796 I guess I was blessed in that they did the ultra sound, and thyroid uptake scan, and biopsy before putting me on meds...I did not show cancer, or hash's...however my new Dr. said, he does not trust fine needle biopsies, so he has plans for a different test...from the sound of what you are saying I may have to go off of my meds before he does any more thyroid tests...I was also diagnosed with atrial fibrillation...
Avatar f tn If you cannot get them, then I would report the hospital and doctor to the state medical board. Your HC dosing is also, IMHO, wrong, as it does not follow what a normal body does - and normally one would take the bulk in the morning, and then lesser in the afternoon, and none at night so one can sleep. I would not drive while on pain pills. You will feel normal again, but you are healing from a major surgery so take it easy.
