    I agree with Lisa's reply. There are a number of things that could cause the symptoms you're noticing, but at your age, cancer is not likely among them. Make an appointment with your doctor, and save...

    Let me get this straight: you're an out-of-shape 20-something with poor lifestyle choices; you've seen several doctors who can't find anything wrong with you; you've received numerous diagnostic...

    If they look at all suspicious (to the dermatologist), they will usually remove and test them on the spot. You could always call the dermatologists' office and ask them, too.

    Hello, I'm sorry that your symptoms have brought you here. I will tell you this, x-rays, ultrasounds, and any other scan will not confirm cancer. At best, the results will come back inconclusive.
