Is it Mesothelioma Cancer? I have shortness of breath and chest pain?

I am afraid I may have Mesothelioma Cancer, I suffer from shortness of breath and have chest pain. I worked in a factory which used lots of different types of materials. I think asbestos may have been one of them. I don’t know what mesothelioma treatment options are available nor what my resources are. I already received a letter from a specialized mesothelioma law firm saying that I may be affected and want to meet with me. What should I do next?

I am worried I have throat / tonsil cancer, is this cancer or anything to be concerned about?

I am worried I have throat/tonsil cancer. I have 2 areas 1 on each tonsil that shouldn’t be there and I’m not sure how long they have been there. I am 36 year old male with HTN and Gerd. I smoke a pack per day and have since I was 15. My throat doesn’t hurt and I seem to have no other symptoms. Is this cancer or anything to be concerned about? Both things are squishy and painless.

I’ve had a bump on my eyelid for over a week, is this cancer?

I’ve had a bump on my eyelid for over a week. At first I believed it was a cyst but it won’t subside and is larger. I don’t know what it is or how to deal with it, hopefully it isn’t as serious and will go away but please help me identify what this bump is, the cause and solution.

I have lost most of my hearing in my left ear and vision in left eye, is it a brain tumor?

I believe I have a possible head tumor. About a year ago I was experiencing buzzing in both of my ears that would only last a seconds. It would happen just a couple times a month. Then the buzzing became longer periods & was happening more often. Then it eventually became a constant buzzing in only my left ear. I have lost most of my hearing in my left ear. This hearing loss has happened within the last 4 months. I also have had my vision in my left eye intercepted by by whatever is causing the buzzing in my left ear. With thin the same 4 months, I can not see very well in the Left eye. It’s very blurry. Even if I put something close to my face, I still can not see things clearly. The buzzing is constantly going on from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed.

I had a benign breast tumor removed, is it possible for the tumor to have returned?

Hi,
I am a 26 year old female and In December 2015, I had a lump removed from my breast. It was benign breast tumor but it was removed as it was quite large. I noticed the lump was there as I was getting a pain where it was, especially when I had my period. Over the last 6 months or so the pain has returned in my breast and it is a little worse than what it was before. I’m not sure if I can feel a lump as it feels different with the scar and has always been a bit tender since the surgery. Is it possible that the lump has returned and do I need to go and see my GP?

I received a chest x-ray, chest CT scan with contrast dye and an MRI would these tests show breast cancer?

Hi. I am a 41 year old woman.
Last year I was hospitalised with a severe bacterial infection. I received a chest x-ray, chest CT scan with contrast dye and an MRI. I also had a follow up chest CT scan with dye a few months after leaving hospital. This was September 2016.

My question is, would these tests show breast cancer, and secondly, would it be risky to have a mammogram so soon after these tests that use radiation .
Thanks.

10 years ago I had breast cancer?

10 years ago I had breast cancer. The chemotherapy caused phlebitis very badly, particularly in my right arm; I had cording and collapsed veins too – again, mostly my right arm. Although all clear now, during the intervening years I have had a couple of bouts of phlebitis in my right wrist where it has been obvious – red, inflamed and painful. Both times have been treated with antibiotics on the first visit to the GP. I had a severe bodily infection too c2009 when I was hospitalised. I needed constant intravenous treatment but again, my veins were too painful, even the flush would be agony and they had to find alternatives. That is the history – now the complaint…
Approximately 6 weeks ago, I was gesticulating in a normal manner during a conversation when on flexing my right hand back, I felt a pop in my wrist, within hours it was painful (4/10) in a sore way. There was a small lump – clearly a vein (possible at a valve) on the inside of my wrist. My wrist continued to hurt for a few days – sometimes an ache, other times like a prolonged hot poker was touching my skin. The GP (in less than 3 mins) suggested it was phlebitis and prescribed ibuprofen gel. It did not improve, so three weeks later the aching and pain had increased in area from inside my wrist to my thumb joint. A another GP suggested that the pop was the release of an adhesion caused by my vein issues from chemotherapy and prescribed heparinoid cream and organised an ultrasound.
The ultrasound found nothing.
The pain is not all the time now, however, it is a lot worse when it does occur (8-10/10). This is usually on exercising my wrist such as picking up the grandchildren, cycling, or similar but, not always on exercising – it sometime wakes me at night. I have tried wearing a support and not wearing a support – there doesn’t appear to be much difference.
On see (yet another) GP as a follow up of the ultrasound, the GP said she had no idea what to do next but if it still hurt in 2 weeks, we could try physio.
But it hurts so badly now, albeit intermittently, let alone for another 2 weeks! The surface of the wrist (upper and lower) has signs of swelling and the veins are swollen near the surface and there is a significant break in the vein structure at the sight of the pain.
Other factors to be aware of – I am diabetic T2 on metformin, 55 year old female, and have had stomach ulcers so can’t take NSAIDs.
I am very tempted to go to A&E as I don’t have confidence in the 1st or 3rd GP’s advice, and when I am in pain, it is excruciating. I can’t see how physio can do anything for this type of condition..
I have the utmost respect for my GP surgery and, before now, they have all been brilliant.
Advise please.

I have 4 and 5mm internal iliac nodes lighting up on my last PET/CT. Are they too small for fine needle aspiration. I am 3 months post colorectal cancer treatment. The original tumor is no longer evident. I have concern about metastasis.
Thanks
