Hi mr Anup,
After 2 nd surgery your surgeon would have certainly gone for FNAC /biopsy. what was the result of biopsy.go for other blood tests like TLC ,DLC, ESR ,S. Cholestrol.
General Surgeon Dr. Swapnendu Sekhar Ghosh's  Response
en welcome to healthcaremagic
as you already have been operated once your surgeon will know what kind of tumor it is
biopsy after removal of the tumor establish the nature of tumor and treatment
from the description it seems you may be having neurofibromas ,a benign condition
please consult surgeon and get check up and treatment accordingly
get a f n a c or biopsy done

My brother has been diagnosed with Lung cancer after his family physician kept misdiagnosing shoulder pain for a tear to the rotator cup for 2-3 months. He just had surgery for a secondary tumor on his right high arm the tumor was in and on his bone size of a golf ball. He has a small primary tumor on the bottom right lung lobe and a very small lesion on his 3rd rib right side. He had aortic valve replacement in 2006 and had many complications that have taken a few years to stablize (mini stroke, tachycardia) and he is on coumadin. Did not want to ask what stage it is but must be 3b or 4a (not in another organ). What kind of prognosis can this have? They are working with an Oncologist from Emory.

Hello and Thank You for Your Time & Attention! A Little over a year ago I had Ovarian Cancer (The Tumors size 16x20 cm & My Symptoms sent me to my Family Dr. which immediately sent me for cat scan and by the next day she had me into U.T. w/their Top Oncologist. Two day s later I was on the Table and came out with Total Hysterectomy & 9 Lymph Nodes Removed. Shocking that it was Located ONLY on One Ovary and was the Slow Growing kind And HAD NOT SPREAD At ALL!! Too be Safe My Oncologist Removed Absolutely Everything, I Agree. He had Already Braced me at my 1st visit TO BE PREPARED For Massive Spreading (Freckling) He called it and to Be Prepared to wake up WITH A PORT! My Angel was Surely with me because IT DID Turn Out to be JUST THE OPPOSITE of ALL that I was Mentally Preped for. And my CA-125 Every 3 months w/Pap Test has blown EVERYONE Away with the Phenominal Blood Test. And they Started Declining Immediately--His goal was 22 and I am Now down to 8! While I was in Surgery He went over me with a fine tooth comb and of course that means Hand Checking my Colon FROM END to END. In Fact That is the only PROBLEM I have had. After my Recovery I expressed my severe Constipation and my Now New Colon Specialist Scheduled and Performed a Colonoscopy and Removed 2 polips and That was ALL that He Found! Since then (which was Several Months ago). My #2 has CONTINUED to Worsen, and He is Inclined to Think that I may have a kink or Twirl/?? Which is Having an Issue in Finding its Way Back to Laying comfortably and that He wanted to run tests to check IF that IS MY Up and Down Dissruption, cause He TOO HAS been from end to end & found nothing but the 2 Polips which of course was removed. Question: If a Small Portion is causing the Issue and Manuevering its little Yoga Positions w/an Attitude, HOW WILL THE DR. GO IN---AND---WHERE---and Just a Brief Run Down in General in Walking me through the Procedure PLEASE!? My Last App when this was discussed ( HIS OFFICE was Getting Slammed) & Basically I was just told to expect a call within a week or two for Scan n schedule date to REMOVE the Area causing me a Problem and that it would be a simple procedure! PROBLEM: He didn t have the time to Explain ALL THAT I HAVE ASKED OF YOU & I SURE WOULD APPRECIATE A SIMPLE BREAKDOWN of the Procedure!? AND ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS /THANK YOU & I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING BACK FROM YOU--Even if Your Answer Discribes 2 sticks of dynamite up the Ole shaft and RUN!!! Haaa... THANKS AGAIN/ Sincerely GOT A KINK in Tennessee

Helo, my 3 year olf daughter was diagnosed with aggressive non-germinoma Yolk-sac brain tumour at a late stage in the supracellar area. she had surgery then chemo and was growing normally. It was only after the radiation (only to tumour bed) that she stopped growing. I do not what to do? doctors have not given us any growth hormones. She also is aking cortisol hormone as the gland responsible for it does not seem to be working properly, we have been trying to lower the dose but were not able to stop it. Ps: she lost sight in both eyes since tumour was pressing on optic nerves. Can you advise us please?

My niece s son has been waking at 5:30am every morning for the last month, vomiting. He is a pre-teen in middle school. He has stopped eating because he doesn t want to vomit anymore, and is losing weight. His doctor has not found a cause for this. His grandfather, my younger brother, died of a brain tumor, a glioma.
