    What symptoms did you experience before the cancer diagnosis?

    For months up to diagnosis, I was going to bed earlier ( sleeping about 8-9 hours per night) and experienced some hair loss. (which i attributed to stress). Anyone else experience symptoms you would like to share?

      I had no symptoms at all. My tumor was deep inside the left breast and even after it was found on my mammo and I knew where it was, it was still hard to feel it.

      My major symptoms of ovarian cancer appeared suddenly. One minute I was full of energy and wanting to get out of the house and do things. Then it abruptly hit and I had pain in my right lower abdomen any time I moved. After a couple of days, I started to get a low fever. I then went to see my doctor because I thought I might be having an appendicitis. She thought that it was a possibility and checked me into the hospital. While in the hospital getting tests done, I started feeling very bloated and my abdomen became larger than normal. An earlier symptom I had was that my stools were getting smaller around due to my ovarian tumor pressing on my colon. I may have had other symptoms but I attributed them to menopause.

      I started having ear aches and jaw pain. I blew it off because I had just had dental work and thought I had a dry socket, so the dentist treated me for that with antibiotics and pain pills. Well, it kept getting worse and then my throat became sore and swallowing was painful. when I finally went to the ENT, he felt around and within 2 days I was diagnosed with tongue cancer.

      I had pain in my right breast along with a large lump, but everyone kept telling me it can't be cancer because cancer doesn't hurt, so I thought I had some type of infection, so when the doctor came back after the biopsy & told me it was cancer I was shocked. The doctor said cancer usually doesn't hurt but everybody is different. Oh yea my breast also bled alot.

      I had nose bleeds. Bad nose bleeds more than once a day for no reason. This lasted for several days until stopped. My family doctor ran some blood tests which showed that my blood viscosity was high and that my blood proteins were odd. He sent me to a hemotologist/oncologist who diagnosed WM. After treatment, I noticed that nocturnal leg cramps stopped bothering me. I had had the cramps for several years but they had gotten worse recently. Nocturnal cramps are not considered a symptom of WM, but I think they were in my case. This was two years ago.

      This year before Thanksgiving I had a swelling in my jaw and a tooth abcess. Antibiotics took care of the painful tooth, but not the swelling. As the swelling grew it started to be painful as it pressed against the bones of my jaw. This was finally diagnosed as diffuse large B cell lymphoma. Apparently my WM had learned a new trick.

      Dad had no symptoms at all to start. His tumor was detected on a follow-up PET/CT scan for his previous cancer. Problems started when they did the biopsy. I took him straight back to the hospital that night, and he's been having problems every since.

      No symptoms other than the lump I found. With microcalcifications, I was having mammograms every six months. My last was in June and they said see you in December. Even after I felt the lump in October, my breast tissue is so dense that nothing showed on the mammogram I had a week before the biopsy. The breast MRI showed the tumor was over 2cm in early November.

      Micro calicifications showed up on mammogram and I was advised to come back for repeat mammo in six months. Within those six months, I developed a large, somewhat dense-feeling area (not a "lump" really) which was painful. Turns out it was a large tumor (5.1cm) that had developed since my mammo and doctor exam, both less than six months earlier.

      Looking back I can remember being tired all the time -- even napping during the day which is something I had never done but I just figured it came with age. Then, one time, as I was bathing, I thought I felt a "swelling" under my left arm -- but when I compared right arm area -- it seemed similar so I passed it off. My Tumor (4.9) did not show on mammo or ultrasound (I had dense/fibrocystic tissue). The Doctor at the Clinic felt that my lymph node seemed a little "generous" so she decided to biopsy it which showed the cancer. So, I returned to the Clinic for MRI, Ultrasound, more Biopsies and Mammos (after 6 grueling hours -- I passed out -- fell on my face and broke my nose -- that was my grand finale of the day!). Anyway, after all of that, I got the diagnosis of Invasive Pleomorphic Lobular Carcinoma Stage III with 8 out of 11 positive lymph nodes. Ordinarily -- lymph node involvement is bad news but, in my case, thank God for the lymph node symptom or else I would have gone home for another whole year thinking that everything was okay.

      I never felt a lump, but I felt pain in the area where my cancer was eventually discovered. I told my surgeon about the pain and she told me that cancer does not cause pain. It took two years for my cancer to be diagnosed at stage IIIa.

      Great question! I had been overly tired - the come home work, fall asleep on the sofa with a book, then get up and go to bed type, every night. I also noticed that I was thinking about drinking alcohol much more then ever in my life. I had been a 6 drink a year person and changed to a 6 drink a week person. Over a period of about 3 months I would be woken about twice a week by a sharp pain in my armpit when I rolled over. It was intense, but fleeting, gone within 1 or 2 minutes. I mentioned the arm pit pain to my naturopath who sent me to a breast specialist. In the week before that appt. my breast swelled, nipple pointed west, slight red rash, it was changing every day - so I started taking photos. Inflammatory breast cancer.

      I had a mammogram in November and found a lump in August. I was feeling fatigued and when I looked in the mirror, I kept telling myself that I didn't look good! I knew deep inside that something was wrong but never thought about cancer. I found the lump deep after experiencing a sharp burning sensation in my breast. My surgeon said the tumor (1.8 cm) was pressing on a nerve. I feel very lucky that was the case or it might not have been discovered until the next mammogram. My diagnosis was HER2/Triple Negative which is very aggressive, so was fortunate to get the early diagnosis.

      These comments from the Dr's that "cancer does not cause pain". I think there are a few of us on here that would disagree, don't you?

      For me 1st time, found it when doctor squeezed my neck. I was there for allergies. Second time, follow up after finished being treated for first, Dr. found another lump in neck.

      Third time, I woke up, and felt a sore spot behind my ear. It was a very small lymph node. First time I found it myself.

      Yeah, cancer can cause pain. Anyone who tried to lay the "cancer does not cause pain" mantra on me last week would have been given a loud rebuke. :-) It may be that a growing tumor, by itself, does not cause pain. But, if it presses against the wrong nerve or place then, yes, cancer can be painful. Pay attention to pains. They are a messge. Don't be a hypochondriac, but check it out. It may not be cancer, but it is something.

      As I looked back shortly after being diagnosed, my cat would not leave me alone. When I would sit or lie down he would start head butting in the chest area. Now I have heard of dogs detecting cancer but cats??? Other than that I had no symptoms. I decided it was time for a routine mamo. The cancer was found extremely early. Thank you Sebastion (the cat). He still demanded attention but not to the extent as before. Now I don't think everyone should run out and get a cat and this could be all hogwash but who knows.

      @babab I just watched a piece on one of the news shows about a dog that would alert if the child's sugar level dropped or went hi. There are dogs that can sniff out termites, so why not a cat that knows something is wrong. I also seen a piece where a dog would go into s residents room and stay there just before they were going to die. Now, I don't want that dog anywhere near me, and I wonder what the residents in the Nursing Home thought when the dog came in the door.

      Mammo, ultrasound, and biopsy suggested that my tumor was less than 1cm. At this point, my surgeon told me that a tumor this small wouldn't cause pain even though I insisted it did. Subsequent MRI revealed it to be 5.1 x 3.3 x 2.5cm. My pain was real!

      I started having abdominal pain which I took care of with Aleve. Thought (and everyone else did too) it was gallbladder. After several days, decided I was treating symptoms and not cause and went to ER. Pancreas enzymes were very high and was dx with acute pancreatitis. Hospital stay 5 days. This was in April, pain returned in June, but only at night, would take 2 Aleve and no more pain, back to sleep. Thought oh no, now I have chronic pancreatitis. Went back to ER and pancreas enzymes were fine, but liver enzymes were high, but wasn't jaundice. Had ERCP, stayed another 5 days and received pancreatic cancer dx August 2. I am so glad I have never been much of a pill taker, I knew there had to be something wrong and that I did not want to just treat pain with Aleve, but find out the cause of the pain. I am grateful to the ER doctor, who didn't just brush me off, give me stronger pain meds and send me on my way. I think we very often treat symptoms, but not the cause.

      No symptoms, none, nada, zip, zilch. Just to be crystal clear - I never felt anything inside or outside. No lump, no pain, nothing. And the tumor (2.5 cm) was very close to the surface, right under the nipple - still no palpable lump. I had even had a ob-gyn check up days before my mammogram and the doctor didn't feel a thing. Just more anecdotal evidence of how invidious this disease can be!

      I was euphoric. I literally had described myself that way to a friend about 3 weeks prior to my diagnosis.I felt better than I had in years prior to my diagnosis, energetic, clear headed, happy, all the good things you want to be which is why I think I've handled the diagnosis and treatment as well as I have. I'm not done yet but I just finished surgery and I saw my plastic surgeon today and he was really pleased with my healing, as am I. I'm lucky because my husband has been my rock and I've allowed myself a lot of room to do what makes me happy and I'm not stressing but that attitude shift started prior to the diagnosis which is why I was euphoric going into it. It was all the stress the years prior to me quitting my job and getting my hypothyroidism diagnosed and treated that probably caused the cancer to begin with. But I can't change that.

      Yes, CherlyS, I also smelled someone smoking, started in 2006 periodically and then was quiet often and now you bring it up I haven't smelled that in a while...finished my radiation in April of 2013. Geez, was I smelling my own cancer? I was diagnosed in October of 2012. After surgery they found two areas of cancer, one was stage 2 invasive the other was stage 0 non invasive, they were about an inch apart. Strange.

      On July 5th, 2009 I was in a horrific car accident. A vehicle pulled out in front of me at an intersection. I could not avoid him and I t-boned the area between his 2 doors on the driver side. I was wearing my seat belt. The airbags on both sides of the car deployed and delivered a power punch to my chest as my chest was slammed into the steering wheel while the top of my head hit the windshield and left a protruding bulge in the glass. I was taken to the ER. I was banged up, bruised and my knees hurt. The front end of my car was pushed into the car and the bottom of the dashboard was shoved into my knees. My chest was badly bruised and I has seat belt marks across both breasts and across my lap from hip to hip.My 3 year old Grand Am was totaled. Before I was discharged from the hospital, I learned that the other driver (92 yrs old) had passed away at the scene due to a heart attack. His wife (90 yrs old) was a passenger in his vehicle. I became absolutely hysterical. The doctor ordered a shot to be administered and I went to sleep very quickly. When I awoke I was home and my husband had carried me into the house and put me in bed. I was unable to lift ANYTHING for weeks. Not even my coffee cup. I could not extend my arms out in front of me. It felt as though I had broken every rib from top to bottom. I throbbed between my shoulder blades. I had difficulty going to the bathroom. Sleeping. I learned more details about the man over the coming weeks. I read his obituary in our newspaper. He was a WWll veteran. He was the caregiver to his ailing wife. She had to be place in an an assisted living facility to be cared for in his absence. He was a 33 degree Mason, A Shriner. He was in a weekly bowling league. I was very depressed, lethargic, confused, slow to process any information. I could see people speaking to me, their lips moving, I could hear their voice, but I didn't know what they were saying. I had to begin seeing a mental health counselor. I was diagnosed with PTSD and Survivors' Guilt. I was given medication. I was out of work for the rest of the year and was unable to return until March 2010. I had been out of work for 8 months while my chest continued to ache. Doctors said I was very bruised deep inside and it was taking longer to heal than the outside. I would not drive. I could not drive and refused to drive. I didn't even like riding in the car. My husband took me everywhere and back and forth to work. He did all the errands and finances were catching up to us because of being a one income family for so long. He was stressed out and I was still like a zombie.

      I had not had a mammo in years. My dog tried to tell me something wasn't right by bumping my boob. I feel a bit of tenderness when he would do that, but it was my being unaware of what my dog was trying to say. My breast tumor was on the right side of my right breast and it wasn't until the lump began bulge a bit, that the inside of my right arm would rub the right side of my breast. EXACTLY in the area my dog would bump me. He never bumped anywhere else, only on the right side of my boob.

      I grew up on a farm with 4 sisters and 1 younger brother that was in the middle. I am the eldest of 6 kids. We girls always had to work hard to pull our weight to get chores done. I have always been a hard worker and able to out-work many men. I always had a lot of stamina and work 2 jobs for 3 years while my husband attended college as a full-time student.

      I was always carrying something bulky at my job and would bump my boobs quite frequently. So a bit of tenderness was a normal sensation for me. But I began to notice that the tenderness was staying in the right breast. At about the time I became of aware of my breast tenderness I noticed my energy level waning. I could not carry the larger items. I began to ask for assistance with some of my tasks, which was quickly noticed by my co-workers because I had never before asked for help.

      I learned in August 2010 that my husband was being "comforted" by my friend, Laura. She was the wife of his best friend, Ron. I was devastated and plummeted back into another bought of PTSD before fully recovering from the 1st from the accident. I was heartbroken. Really, really heartbroken. I had been betrayed by 2 people I trusted. My husband I had known since I was in the 3rd grade. He was in the 5th. We grew up together. had the same childhood friends and played in the same neighborhood. He was my world. My whole world. The only man I had ever loved and wanted to love. He was my best friend. My confidante and now I could not trust him. He was asked to leave and I put his belongings on the front lawn. I was forced to drive myself and frightened to death being on the road. I drove to find an attorney and I filed for divorce and had him served 9 weeks shy of our 35 wedding anniversary. I asked for a restraining order. We had a court date in 2 weeks for the Spousal Support hearing and my charges of adultery asking for alimony. Our dog waited and waited by the front door. He walked the house looking from room to room for my husband. He was pitiful and his actions saddened me more because he didn't understand that his other pet parent (Pa-Pa) wasn't coming back.

      I made an appt with my family doctor to have a female pelvic and breast exam. She didn;t like the way the right breast felt and scheduled me for a mammogram. My husband and I met in court that morning. My private detective produced the evidence of my adultery charges and he was ordered to pay me 2k on the spot in order to catch up the household bills and reimburse me for the fees paid to the detective. I was given 1/2 his monthly salary each month. I was granted my separation papers until the final divorce hearing at a later date. He was angry. He tried to tell me he was sorry and I told I didn't have time to listen to his misery. I told him my chest had not improved and I had to get to the doctor for my mammo results. I told him to have his attorney talk to mine, and I left him standing there.

      I wasn't expecting anything abnormal. I was 52 and my exams had always come came clear or good....until this time. That bump was a tumor. She referred me to a breast specialist. He tested me, biopsied me, CT scan and ultrasound. I had PET scans, bone scans. All of this revealed a Grade 2b tumor. It was also HER2 NU negative. It would take19 months of treatments, therapy, radiation, 3 surgeries and 12 months of Herceptin i.v.'s.

      I called and told my husband that it had been diagnosed with breast cancer. He accused me of making it up in order to get him to return home. I told him I DID have cancer, I did not want him to return home and if he showed up at the house, I'd shoot him for trespassing. Remember now, I grew up on a farm and learned to shoot. I was an excellent shot and not skeet got passed me when I hollered, "Pull". He knew I had a great aim.)

      I was very deeply heartbroken. I missed him very much. It was very hard going thru all of that without him. He adultery also impacted our daughter who was 31 at the time. I had a lot of stress on me. I was terrified of having been forced into driving again. I was dealing with the accident attorney, my divorce attorney, trying to work, juggle doctor appt's, and still seeking understanding and trying to cope with the PTSD. I was still under the care of my mental health counselor. I could no longer care for my dog or walk him. Our daughter came from her home 6 hrs away to take my dog back with her. The house was then very quiet. All I did was cry and sob. My dog was my snuggler. He comforted me.

      The holidays were very bad without the presence of my husband. His birthday, my birthday, the holiday traditions we had done year after year, our daughter's life was now greatly impacted. This disturbed me very much. Everything that was of family holidays and significant events were now separate and divided between spending time with me, him and the now girlfriend( that our daughter once knew as a friend of mine), spreading herself visiting both sides of the family, 2 sets of grandparents and her taking a stand to everyone that she was NOT going to be in the middle of everyone's emotions, griping and questions for information. She told everyone not to tell her anything about anybody. Another wedding anniversary come and gone with nothing to celebrate. Our divorce was finalized June 2011.

      I finally settled the accident. too. Both insurance companies came to an agreed upon amount. My attorney took his 1/3 of a share right off the top, he issued checks and paid all the hospital and all other associated bills. He also wrote a check for $1200 to my ex-spouse because his attorney claimed that he should be compensated for being my caregiver and chauffeur after the accident. My attorney gave me what was left. My divorce from the adulterer cost me $20K. What a surprise, that is exactly the amount that was supposed to my compensation from the accident. The anguish, PTSD, coping with the man's death. It was a very hard mental journey for me. I handed that check to my divorce attorney and walked away with nothing. There was nothing left to purchase another vehicle to replace the Grand Am that was totaled. I was the victim and everyone else got paid.

      My treatments and cancer journey continued on. I lived alone, worked and returned home. More doctor visits and all of the treatments would continue until Feb 2012.

      Here I am almost 5 years later and my Breast Cancer has returned. A whole other aggressive beast than the 1st time. It is now Triple Negative, Invasive ductal carcinoma. I cannot do radiation again because it seems you cannot radiate the same breast twice. I will be seeing my breast specialist about my double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.

      The divorce has taken its' toll on me. I miss my old life. The life that was impacted and destroyed by others without my permission. I miss normal. My "old" normal. Now everyone expects me to "get over it and move on". You have a do-over and a fresh, new start.Well, I don't want a new normal. My life has been deeply effected enough by all the chaos of "newness" .

      My life has been deeply effected enough by all the chaos of "newness". It cost me everything and now I get new, fake boobs.??

      I experienced sore throwt before I was diagnosed w/breast cancer. I was weird because I had never felt sore throwt before. I was very healthy and active. Eventually it went away and then I found out about that I had breast cancer.
