Re: Worried

We are not doctors. It would be irresponsible for us to speculate on your situation. You need to follow up with your doctor. Good luck.

Re: Just can't let it go

Perhaps you should talk to somebody about your anxiety. Lay off google. It’s a bit rude coming to a board of cancer patients being so upset about a benign polyp. Every one of us would gladly trade places with you. I don’t mind questions from people who don’t have cancer and I would always encourage ...

Re: Just can't let it go

You got good news. Every one of us who has been diagnosed with cancer would be very thankful to be in your shoes. I don’t know what else you expected but from what you are describing, that is an appropriate pathology report.

Re: Genetic test results

I have lynch and did not have a choice on ovaries as I got ovarian cancer. I went into menopause at 33. I would advise keeping your ovaries. A lot of doctors are not supportive of hormone replacement in cancer patients. And menopause blows. It took me 7 years to get adequtw treatment for the menopau...

Re: My father's ashamed of me

I have been both a patient and a caregiver. Being a caregiver was by far the harder role. It is so hard to see someone you love suffer and not be able to do anything about it. Your father is probably terrified of losing you. Parents act in ridiculous ways when their kids are hurting. Even though he ...

Re: Might have colon cancer

We are not doctors. We are cancer survivors or loved ones of survivors. We don’t know and it would be irresponsible for us to guess on your situation or to give out medical advice. Any concern about your health should be addressed with a doctor. Good luck.

We are not doctors. We are cancer survivors. Any health concern should be addressed with your doctor, not on google, and not on an online forum. Good luck.

Re: Colon symptoms bleeding etc

We are not doctors and neither is google. We are colon cancer survivors or loved ones of survivors. That does not qualify us to speculate on your symptoms. Follow up with your doctor as advised. Good luck.

Re: Symptoms - Worry about it

We are not doctors and neither is google. For a proper diagnosis, you need to contact your doctor and address your concerns with him/her. Could be something or it could be nothing. Only a colonoscopy will tell for sure. But we are not qualified to speculate on your situation as we are not doctors. B...

Re: I think i may have colon cancer

We are not doctors, we are just people who unfortunately were diagnosed with colon cancer. We are not qualified to speculate whether or not you have cancer. You have an appointment with a gastroenterologist and that is the best place to address your concerns. Best of luck to you.

Re: "Dr" Google can be good

When anyone is diagnosed with cancer, I certainly think it is important to research. I certainly did. I think it’s unwise for folks who have anxiety about their health or are hypochondriacs to consult dr google about their symptoms and convince themselves they have cancer. I have only ever advised t...

Re: Possible Third Diagnoses

I can empathize with how you are feeling. In a span of 18 months, I was diagnosed with colon cancer, Lynch syndrome, and ovarian cancer. 4 abdominal surgeries and lots of chemo. It scares people when someone they love or know gets cancer. All those positive comments are more for them. I had a lot of...

Re: So confused

Everybody has a different experience. I never had any pain under the belly button. I’m sorry you felt that he was rude, but he is right to tell you to go to the ER. He cannot diagnose or treat you over the phone. He doesn’t even know you as you are not his patient. As it is Friday night, the only wa...
