Avatar f tn Hi my name is Dawne and I am 48 years old. I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer Stage IV on August 21, 2007. My cancer has mets into my lung.

Avatar m tn hi everyone. on the right side of my neck next to my throat i get a kind of pulling sensation/feeling like something might be stuck in my throat on that side from time to time. i got this feeling once almost a year ago and went to the doctor for it. he said maybe it was allergies but didnt seem concerned because he felt around my neck and didnt feel any lumps. with him telling me there was nothing to worry about i put it out of my mind and it wasnt an issue anymore.
Avatar n tn The official stages for breast cancer are Stages 0 through Stage IV, and each stage and subcategory of the stages has clearly defined features. Another breast cancer Website had an article that mentioned Stage V in its title, but not in the article itself. After I pointed out the error to them, they indicated they would make a correction. (They also mentioned that some people "unofficially" talk about Stage V when there is nothing more that can be done except palliative treatment.
Avatar f tn It is important to get your annual pelvic and pap tests, that is the best way to find this cancer at its earliest stages when it is most curable. I hoped this helped.
Avatar m tn There are actually only 4 stages that are used to describe the advancement of breast cancer. Stage 4 is when the cancer has spread to other organs and/or tissues such as the brain, bone, liver or lungs. It is stated that Stage 4 has a 5 year survival rate of only 16%. Please keep in mind that this varies according to the location of the metastisis. I personally know of survivors of many years with mets to the bone.
Avatar n tn I was reassuring myself that regular visits to the dentist would allow for early detection and ensure that if I ever do develop oral/throat cancer it would be treated in the early stages and pose little serious threat. Now, however, I feel less confident. I'm sure Michael Douglas had some of the best oral surgeons and ENT's and they still did not detect it. Are regular visits to the dentist really adequate? 4.
Avatar n tn t notice it until after I had a two day sore throat). The tonsil does not hurt at all and the swelling seems to be part of the tonsil. When I look at it with a light the skin looks like the same as the other tonsil which is normal. However, when I push my tongue down I can see large white spots that are painless, where the tonsil connects to the base of the throat. When I push on the spots no puss or anything is produced. I had my dental exam 6 weeks ago.

Avatar n tn The pain comes and goes with the different stages of the menstrual cycle. It responds to drugs like Danazol. Other possibilities are a galatocele or milk filled lump in breastfeeding ladies, or an abscess, or breast cancers (usually are painful in late stages). Sometimes fibroadenoma of breast which is a benign condition is also painful. Injury to breast can also cause contusion or blood collection. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar m tn After surgery, treatment will depend on what stage the cancer is in (stage refers to the size and extent of spread of the cancer), and what kind of testicular cancer the patient has (seminomatous or non-seminomatous). For earlier stages, observation or radiation treatment after the surgery may suffice, but for more advanced stages, chemotherapy needs to be done. The usual drugs given include Cisplatin, Etoposide and Bleomycin.

Avatar m tn Cancer originating in the salivary glands diagnosed as Adnocarsonoma Cancer was removed by surgery and has now spread to Lymph nodes on each side of the jaw of the 89 year old matriarch in our family. We understand it is terminal and are not pursuing further treatment for it, however, we do not understand how aggressive it is etc. Questions: How is it expected to progress? I.e.: Will it spread thru the Lymph node system or into the throat? How Quickly will it spread - i.e.
Avatar n tn Are you in the late stages of terminal cancer? Probably not, so no, you are conclusive move on!
Avatar n tn There is a big difference between having HPV and cervical cancer. If you had an abnormal Pap and a positive HPV test or a Pap that was suggestive of HPV and you have had normal paps for 8-9 yrs then you should consider yourself clear. Dysplasia and "precancer" is different than cancer and can be treated with LEEPS etc. There are 3 stages of "precancer"; CIN l-lll, before you get to the 5 cancer stages. And if your Paps are normal after a LEEP for 8-9 yrs.
Avatar n tn In the net they mention that this could be a sign of cancer (lymphoma, cancer of the lung or throat) why my Doctor didn't send me for a biopsy of the lump just to be in the safe side. I went to a second Doctor and she could hardly feel it and said no to worry about it that the lump it's too small. I don't know what to do.

Avatar m tn Well, oesophageal cancer could be of several subtypes and prognosis would largely depend on the stage of the cancer and cannot be generalized. While initial stages may respond well to treatment, the prognosis is often grim in the later stages; while palliative care may also be difficult. It would be best to discuss the prognosis with her treating doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!

Avatar m tn It is found in the mouth/throat of about 7-14% of sexually active adults and causes mouth/throat cancer. The vaccine does not prevent transmission of the virus and it does not treat the virus that is already acquired. It greatly reduces the chance of catching the strains of the virus most likely to cause cancer if given before exposure. HPV is spread through oral sex. It is found in the mouth/throat of about 7-14% of sexually active adults and causes mouth/throat cancer.
