      It's amazing how many different types of cancer there are

    Other Care (testing): ever since the diagnosis of the Adrenal Cortical Carcinoma, I have had to sign lots of papers and have had tons of testing done. I was at Mayo Clinic in MN for years, but haven’t had any testing done in about 5 years now:( They stated I would never be “cancer free” due to the little known about my cancer.

    Side Effects (Overly tired from stress.): To this day, I have a really hard time with any type of stress. I’m just wiped out from it? It’s been getting really bad throughout the years.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): They told me I had a large mass on my adrenal gland. They went to remove it. Found out it was a little bigger than a softball size. I was only 15 years old.
    A couple weeks later, I was called back into the doctor to find out that it was cancerous. They didn’t know this before they removed the tumor along with the adrenal gland.
