My brother in law just recently had a hemicolectomy done, and during a follow up appointment with the general surgeon, he was told that he had stage 4 cancer in his stomach lining. While he was in the hospital, they did 2 catscans of his abdominal area, without dye, and an ultrasound of his stomach without dye as well. Isn t an MRI or a catscan with dye necessary to determine cancer?

Yes please, I have been experiencing some pain in my under arm/armpits, especially here lately the left one and can be quite uncomfortable! This has been occurring for about a year but I have had no insurance, I attempted to call to try & get a mammogram done but couldn t find a facility that would help me out due to the county that I had been living in. I ve have noticed a bit more swelling in the underarm area, maybe it s the lymph nodes not sure. I recently got insurance but waiting on my insurance cards to arrive however the pain has really increased on the left underarm, wondering if I should just go on to the ER?! Sherry Rios THANKS!

hello, my brother in law was DX in Sept with small cell lung CA. He had a reoccurence after initial Chemo and is now on Topectan. Today, his O2 sat rate dropped to 85%. They have ordered O2 at home now. What might be the reason for this new development. I am a nurse and I know his DX is EXTENSIVE. He also has a tumor in the head of his pancreas and mets to his adrenal gland. What might be next? Could this new development be paraneoplastic syndrome? thank you, Jimmy Trusso, R.N. in Cleveland
