User :   Hello
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
how can I help you?
User :   ok- so I have a question about a type of cancer (or rather what I think is not a type of cancer and the person who claims to have it is just BSing me)
User :   "Nymposidic Sarcoma"
Doctor :  
you mean lymphocytic sarcoma?
User :   nope
User :   she confirmed it is the above
User :   also - want to know if tumors "move" or "shift"
Doctor :  
i have never heard of this name
Doctor :  
it is called as metastasis
Doctor :  
if tumors move from one place to another
User :   would a person "feel" that as it happens
Doctor :  
it can be diagnosed by investigations only
User :   so - they wouldn't stand up per se and be able to "feel" it move
Doctor :   it will depend on the location

Doctor :   regarding which tumor are you asking?
User :   well - she claims there is one in her head and chest and stomach
User :   she lives in my house at the moment and the only meds she takes are associated with high blood pressure
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
you can ask her for her CT reports
User :   she won't give them - I think it is a game really - I just want to confirm that the type of cancer she claims to have isnt real (I cant find any info on it online)
User :   lastly - when someone is in the "final stage" of cancer (that they have been "battling" for years) is it normal for them to be able to maintain excessive body weight
User :   like 400Lbs
Doctor :   if someone has one in brain then it is tough
User :   tough how?
User :   she is very functional - I mean as functional as one can be carrying 400lbs of body weight
User :   but she is not bed ridden
User :   she functions on her own (cooks for herself - bathes - etc)
Doctor :   it is tough to believe

Doctor :  
i had never heard of the tumor you are saying
User :   me either
User :   ok - don't want to take anymore of your time - I feel like an idiot who is being taken advantage of
User :   I appreciate your input
Doctor :

Doctor :

User :   as excellent
User :   and thank you

User :   no - now I just have to tell her to go
User :   that is all
User :   thanks
User :   people are weird
User :   the things they will say for attention I guess
User :   thanks, doc
