2. You should be addressing that concern to a DOCTOR, not an internet message board.
Seriously- If you think you have a problem, you need
to be talking to someone who could -DO- something about it.
The DU Lounge is not that someone.

6. I understand being scared; I've made more than one cancer scare
in the past couple of years where I had symptoms that pointed to cancer. I got lucky,and they were all something else. Your pain could be a lot of things but for your own peace of mind, check it out with your doctor right away. Even if it is cancer (and the odds are it isn't--just a guess of course), cancer is far from the automatic death sentence it used to be. Be strong, be brave and get it checked out without any further delay. I'm hoping for the best for you.

8. It's the early Saturday AM & this thread is on a website in a world that DOESN'T revolve around you.
You don't need to DENY any reality, you need to RECOGNIZE some. :idea:

I'm gonna say "good day" now.

Good day.

7. non-hodgkins lymphoma?
My sister has had it - twice. She's doing fine. If you get to the doctor while it's small, they can usually get it with radiation and you won't have to go through chemo. Go to the doctor on Monday and if they don't find anything quickly, demand an MRI.

9. go to the doc, it also could be something fairly simple
That pain could just mean you have an infection (extreme immune response).How silly would you feel knowing all that worrying was for something that an anti-biotic could clear up

10. Locking
DU members are not qualified to provide medical advice. Please go to a medical professional, as soon as possible, to have what is a potentially serious condition investigated.
