      I am not a male, but my s/o is a lung cancer survivor. he has sd and is seeing a urologist for this. has it helped? no. he said he is just glad to be alive since 1 of his lungs was removed. my libido is low also as a current treatment patient , still on oral cancer meds.

    Procedure or Surgery (Mohs surgery)

    Procedure or Surgery (Simple removal surgery ): For fifteen plus years I've had a growth under my right middle fingernail. For all that time it didn't seem to cause much of a problem, however about once a month I would have to "scrape" it out and snip it with nail cutters. I did seek treatment from my doctor who diagnosed it a a "flat wart". He treated it several times with liquid nitrogen but is still grew back. In the meantime I was treating it with Compound W, Freeze-Off, vinegar and everything else I could throw at it to rid my self of the problem.

    Nothing worked so I was sent to a surgeon who removed the growth. He sent it in to pathology for testing. The test results showed squamous cell carcinoma.

    I was totally caught off guard as was my doctor and surgeon. I have been dealing with lung cancer for over two years now and certainly didn't need this in the mix!

    Oh No (I was just diagnosed with a new cancer...): After going through the surgery (lobectomy) to remove the NSC Lung Cancer I had, all the chemo treatments, etc. my last CT scan on my lungs came back clear! In the meantime, I had a growth under my right middle fingernail. It was diagnosed and treated as a wart for years, however would not go away. I had surgery to remove the growth and it was sent to pathology for testing. The pathology report indicated that the growth is Squamous Cell Carcinoma. So here I go on my next cancer journey...
