I’ve recently gone to the dentist and said they found oral cancer?

I’m a 22 year old female who doesn’t smoke or drink. I’ve recently gone to the dentist and they used a blue light and said they spotted something on my soft palate and said it could be oral cancer. I’ve had this spot for a while (years ) and figured it was from sucking the roof of my mouth or clicking it with my tongue when my allergies act up. Again the spot never really goes away and it doesn’t bother me. It’s pretty crush feeling there is some white spots around it.. From what I’ve read online im scared it could be oral cancer. My question is does this look like a oral cancer lesion from the pictures I posted? What are the odds of my getting oral cancer being that I’m only 22 and does not smoke or drink? (it’s that small dark dot behind the big lump on my hard palate)



How to treat leiomyosarcoma and rectal cancer at the same time?

Hi,
My 54 year old wife had been battling stage 4 leiomyosarcoma for the past 10 years. She has tumors in about 8 locations, lung, stomach, limbs, bone. It has been slowly advancing and is chemo resistant. Now if you can believe it she has rectal cancer with invasive adenocarcinoma. It was removed w/o clear margins through TAE. It was 5 CM, poorly differentiated cells, invaded perirectal tissue, invaded perineural, and has suspected lymphovascular invasion. How in the heck does she attack both at one time. TY

I had yearly pap yesterday, doctor says discharge may be yeasty, frightened it is cervical cancer?

Hello I am 43, I have had regular pap smears yearly. I have had one child 20 years ago vaginally, and one 14 years ago c-section. I have always had discharge, nothing too alarming to me, sometimes, its watery, sometimes its clear, mucosy, every once in a while its thick white/light yellow. But out of a month, other than when my cycle ends, I pretty much experience some sort of discharge. I had my yearly pap yesterday, and the doctor put in speculum, then said, you have thick discharge in here, I’m going to clean it out. She cleaned it out with a big qtip, then said “i can’t tell if its yeasty or not”. She finished the pap, and that’s it. Now I looked up discharge, and all say cervical cancer. I’ve had all kinds throughout the months, but I always thought it was normal. Now I’m frightened. Any advice?

Stage 4 sarcomatoid carcinoma, 50 tumors in liver, what are best options for treatment?

Sometime in late September to early October of 2016, my father (56 year-old caucasian male; was 202 lbs in October, is currently 193 lbs) noticed a bump on his face directly in front of his ear that was hard and painful when touched. He told his ENT and he ordered a CAT scan and a biopsy. By the time we got the results of the tests several more bumps had appeared in the same area along with a larger lump on the same side of his neck. The results indicated cancer in his parotid gland and surrounding lymph nodes. In mid December, a surgeon removed the parotid gland and 23 lymph nodes from his neck and the side of his face (sacrificing a large branch of the facial nerve in the process). After coming home a little bit less than a week after the surgery, my father found that he was becoming more and more tired and out of breath even when exerting very little energy. This past Saturday, we took him to the emergency room because our family doctor was worried that he might have a blood clot. Instead, they found that his bilirubin was building up in his system (also causing his stool to be yellowish) and his liver enzymes were (and still are) rapidly increasing. He had a PET scan yesterday and the results came back earlier today. The scan revealed over 50 tumors in his liver and over 20 in his spleen. This is when we were told that he has stage 4 sarcomatoid carcinoma. The preferred treatments for this (I believe the nurse practitioner told us they were taxanes and a some form of chemotherapy that is very toxic to the liver and kidneys) are not options because the cancer is in his liver and because he has had two kidney transplants (a double transplant in 1992 and one kidney transplant in 2012). His current symptoms are shortness of breath, fatigue, yellow stool, and pain in the left upper quadrant. What I want to know is what our best options will be for treatment. I also want to know the survival rate for this form of cancer and how long he may have to live.

I was diagnosed with Cervical cancer I have some lymph nodes that are swollen and a ongoing cough producing phlem/mucus?

Hello. I am a 36 year old female experiencing an ongoing cough producing phlem/mucus for around 4 weeks now, drenching night sweats, every night for the past couple of weeks. I have to change my clothes 2-3 times each night. I am generally cold, so this is strange for me. I am also experiencing weight loss and poor appetite, but was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism 17 years ago. I have been able to maintain my weight at around 110 pounds, but the last several months, it has been very difficult to keep it up. I was diagnosed with Cervical cancer a little over a year ago, but was able to get it surgically removed and my pap smears have come back normal since. I have some lymph nodes that are swollen and slightly tender in the neck and groin area. I also have Ankylosing Spondylitis. I don’t know if these are related, but my research thus far shows that they may be linked. I greatly appreciate you taking the time to look this over, and offering some advice!



My mother was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, now cloudy eye lens is it eye cancer?

Hi, my mother was diagnosed with multiple myeloma 3 years ago. She is currently taking thalidomide and dexamethasone and some medications to control her diabetes and is doing well to keep the multiple myeloma condition controlled (lab results are good since she started taking thalidomide).

Few months ago she started having a swollen eye on her right eye and has been seeing multiple doctors and received different treatments that did not help. Recently she was referred to the autoimmune specialist and was told that the swollen eye was causes by autoimmune reaction and was diagnosed with anterior uveitis. She was then prescribed another medication.

Two days ago, that swollen eye got much worse and now there is a cloudy area on her lens. See attached picture.

Do you think this is a condition caused by her multiple myeloma condition or just severe anterior uveitis? Is there a possibility of her having eye cancer?

In addition, is there any treatment that can be recommended to treat her eye condition?

Thank you so much for any insight that can be provided.
