Living with Breast Cancer / Mammogram panic
« Last post by jfox90 on January 16, 2019, 03:09:09 pm »
I had a mammogram today of my one breast because I felt this weird bump in it during my last check. Thedoctor said she diddnt think it was anything but it should be checked. The mammogram went fine, but then the tech for ultrasound came in. I showed her the spot where the lump was nad she focused in on it. I could see that she was sorta measuring it, so there was definitely something there. They said they will call me back tomorrow, but I am freakign out! My worst nightmare is coming true. I don't believe breast cancer runs in my family, but how far back would I have to look?!

hi Chloe, tanning beds can be really detrimental to skin I have freinds who still tan even though I went through skin cancer which is surpising to me. I am not sure of any ways to turn back the damage, but make sure she stays away from those things, and is really careful about future sun exposure. If you or her spot any weird spots definitely get them checked out.

I recently found out that my daughter is usng tanning beds and im so nervous she will develop cancer. Should I make a doctors appointment to get her checked to be proactive? Also does anyone have any good creams or vitamins that could help reverse some of the downfalls of tanning?

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season this year! Pauly, maybe a good way to stay motivated is making this our new years resolution. There's no better time to make a new goal or dedication, and commitment to staying active would be a great one! Hope everyone has a happy new year  :D

My father had that issue alot when he was going through chemo. What motivated him was finding a partner. He often times had a friend or family member (myself) go on walks with him. This not only distracted him from his legs wanting to collapse from the tiredness, but also kept him pushing. When picking a partner they should be your cheerleader. Someone who knows not to push you to much, but keep you motivated when you feel like giving up. Good conversation helps too!

Im told that staying active while going through colon cancer treatments is one of the best ways to recover. However, the effects of chemotherapy have been giving me fatigue and not motivating me to want to exercise. Anyone else having this issue and can give me suggestions of how to help. I have always had motivation problems so i need creative ways

I was reading up on this as well. CDB is the ingredient in cannibis that does not get you high, but has great benefits for nausea, anxiety, and could possibly help fight cancer. I think you should deifnitely giv eit a try, and see how you like it, it worked wonders for my husband durig treatment
