hi! I am 52 yrs old, a mother of 5 & currently undergoing investigations for cervical cancer. I had lower abdominal pain on & off with vaginal discharges (watery) since few months. Accidentally it was found out during an abdominal ultrasound: Uterus normal sized measures 6.2 x 5.1 cms. Endometrium - 1.31 cm with hypoechoic shadows most likely blood. Rt. ovary - 2.01 x 1.87 cms. Lt. ovary - 1.67 x 1.15 cm. No adnexal masses detected. No free fluid in the cul de sac. Cervix appears normal The fluid in my uterus was removed by D&C wherein a biopsy was done & here is the finding: Uterine cervix, cervical biopsy from cervical growth: - Invasive moderately to poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma with glandular extension. - No definite vascular invasion seen in this biopsy specimen. My OBG told me that it is a stage 2 Cevical CA. She ordered for me CT scan & MRI, both with contrasts. here is my CT result: Impression: Bulky uterine cervix Multiple non-enhancing lesions in both lobes of liver ? cysts ?? metastasis. Ultrasound correlation is recommended for differentiation Low attenuating lesion of fat density in the right renal lower pole possibly lipoma My MRI will be resulted after 2 days. I am very anxious & afraid about this. Can you help me more on this? What is the next best thing to do?

I was just told my mammogram came back as abnormal. Waiting to an auth to get a diagnostic mammogram. My question is: I have had joint pains on my neck, under my armpits and shortness of breath. Of course google and it may indicate lung cancer. Not only that but i listen to my body and I know something is wrong.

Persistant itch of right nipple, that has been present for a couple of months? No other symptom, just itch? No redness, crust, discharge, swelling. Have been on HRT patches, 75mg, recently incr/ 100mg, (estrogen) only due to excessive hot sweats, that i had never experienced, for months, didn t consider menopause, due to on HRT, my age. Have been on est only, for, maybe, 30yrs, due to inexplicable, erratic, mood swings, that i, & Doctors thought, hormonal?? In 2007, i was diagnosed with, rapid Cycling Bipolar!! So many years of disruption, to my life, huge financial loss, in Hypermanic states, depression, was diagnosed, in 1998!! The ups , i believed, were me, not depressd. But, so many years, on HRT??? Have not had a mammogram, or ultra sound, for maybe 13yrs ,as i have breast implants, since 1982, have been told, by Doctors, less risk of breast cancer?? A mammogram, in 1994, ruptured implant!! Did, continue checks, annually, but ultrasound. Last, 2001, then moved from Syd to Gold Coast, no checks?/ I think maybe, with what Bipolar has done, breast cancer, stupid i know, but, don t want to know. Far from an intelligent attitude, & writing this, maybe, since looking up causes, none, with added symptoms, make sense, relate, maybe, a little concerning?? Sensible option, have an ultra sound?? But, maybe no need?? Simple answer, just an itchy nipple?? I don t have a GP at the moment. So, could it be something to be concerned about, or nothing?? Annie

I recently had a mammogram, it came back perfectly normal. Since then I have had a dime size place high on my breast that itches terribly. At first it looked like a mosquito bite, but now there is only a smooth red itchy place. Is there any connection to this and the mammogram?
