    Freaking out Please help

    Hi All,

    I am literally freakng out and need your help. Remember Novenber 13th I was diagnsed with rectal cancer/ then a spot on colon. My petscan and ct are scheduled for Dec 21, but yesterday I found a lump on side of vagina and my leg is hurting bad. I am so paranoid. The lump is not paninful I 'm just so scared ...please yall write back. Remember they said I had hemmoroids and remove what was really a mass from anal area. What is this lump i found. I do have a bad disc in my back so maybe thats the leg pain but right now I'm hystrical and need suppor. Is the cancer spreading.

    Also before treatment I am trying the maple syrup and bakng soda and turmeric force and have dropped sugar, caffiene and white flour.


    PLEASE ADVICE PLEASE I'M WAITING AND DO NEED YALL PLEASE.

    I don't know about the lump. I guess it could be anything. But try to stay calm as you wait for answers from your doctors.

    I have pinched a nerve and caused my leg to feel numb.

    With cancer, we need to stay calm and take it one step at a time. Jump each hurdle as you get to them. I know it is hard. I am scared stiff when I am waiting for my scan results.

    We may be able to beat cancer, but it always seems to haunt us. Every issue we have with our bodies we wonder if it is cancer.

    Two years into this and I have learned to relax. Panicking gets me no where. Whatever happens happens and I just take it one step at a time.

    (((((((((hugs))))))))))))) I agree with REB, relax and don't panic. Easy to say not easy to do as I panic all the time over everything. But for me analytical, realistic answers to things help. I would ask your Dr. to look at the bump, could be a cyst, a boil, a bruise (bumping against something and getting a lump) I am sure it is okay but none of know, but your Dr .can find out.

    The lump could very well be a boil and even ingrown clogged hair follicle
    had them before. And as it trys to head they do become painfull.
    Ive tryed drawing salve which helped mine.The salve looks and smells like oil/car grease but it works kindof messy. They take a while to go away. You should still mention it to your doctor if it doesnt go away in a reasonable time. Everything isnt cancer.

    Ok

    Thanks Shelia,

    I do understand everything is not cancer but when you have been told that you had hemmoroids for months when it is actually cancer, I just became totally afraid. There is no pain with this lump and today it's bigger. It goes up and dowm in size. My appt is on Monday but for scans and test so I'll see.

    Thanks for replying ....sorry if I bothered you.

    being upset isnt a bother to any of us-everyones upset on this forum for one reason or another and if talking things out makes one feel better-thats the way to go-there is no stupid or bothersome panic-they are all real and scarey no matter how large or small. hang in there were here for ya!
