    Default My mother has cancer.

    Sorry to hear that man, keep your head up, and think positive thoughts. We’ve come along way with cancer treatment. My mom had breast cancer about 7 years ago and she’s fine now. Wishing you and your family all the best.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your mom.

    I lost my mom 3 years ago to lung cancer. My dad is 5 years clean from bladder cancer. My mom was 71 and was full of life. She found out a week before Christmas and past February 11. My mom was my rock and when I lost her it took me a little over a year to feel somewhat normal. I am thankful that she didn't suffer long.

    I hope you hear good news tonight!!

    Update #1 of what will probably be a thousand updates.

    Partial diagnosis: Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    BUT.

    Of course there's a but, nothing can ever be fucking easy.

    She has to go back for another procedure where they will scan her entire body because this type of cancer, although first found in the neck, is more often than not originated elsewhere in the body.

    In other words, the waiting game continues and I need a fucking drink.

    Ugh.

    I lost my mum to cancer, and quickly. Wishing you all the best. Feeling totally helpless, as we all are.

    The waiting game on scans is horrible. Some docs don't call you back for weeks with the results. You have to bug them. In fact I had a doc once who told me just keep calling daily it does not offend me.

    All the best to you bro. I am very fortunate to have both my parents still. They are in their 80s and hanging on.
    One of my best friends was diagnosed with cancer about three weeks ago. We have worked together off and on for 30 years. He has told me he is coming in to work on Tuesday to drag up. As his boss, I am losing a major team player. As his friend, there are no words to describe.

    Sorry to hear this. I lost my best friend this past year and it is not easy. We knew each other since we were kids. Wishing the best for you and your buddy.

    A few weeks ago, my mother felt a lump near one of her carotid arteries & had an X-Ray taken. The lump turned out to be a tumor & they set up an appointment to get a biopsy done. The biopsy came back positive for cancer. We found this out this past Friday & she has an appointment this afternoon with a specialist where she will find out what type, how advanced, treatment options, etc.

    Needless to say, this was one kick in the nuts I didn't see coming. I lost my father age 20 and now I have to at least consider the possibility that this thing is going to be aggressive & I might be parentless before hitting 30. I know people who have had it far worse than me, but my mother is one of two family members left that I'm really close to. Being born much later than most of my friends (Dad was 50 & mom was a month shy of 40 when I was born), I started dealing with death at an early age & the frequency just gets worse. Since 2002, I have lost my father, two aunts, my grandmother, my great aunt, my great uncle & two cousins. Average it out, a death every two years.

    The parts that scare me the most go back to both my aunts (her sisters) passing. Both passed in 2015 & both to cancer (one to lung - spread to the brain & one to ovarian). One was 71 & one was 67. My mother is a few months shy of 69, so she's right smack in the middle of those two ages. The other thing I keep coming back to is, of all people, Lemmy. He was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer that started in his neck & spread to his brain and he was dead less than a month after finding out.

    Then, there's the optimistic portion of me. The best hospitals and cancer treatment facilities on the planet are in Boston. If one has to deal with this sort of thing, you hit the treatment lottery if you're around here.

    People have been telling me not to jump to conclusions until she gets an official prognosis, but I can't help it. With most things in life, I am a pessimist. We're both putting up brave fronts, but inside, we know we're not bullshitting each other, we're both scared shitless.

    I know nobody here knows me personally, but I had to spill my guts somewhere. I'll have an update tonight, whether the news is good or bad. If you're religious, say a prayer tonight for Mama Van Bundy. If you're not religious, watch an episode of The Golden Girls or Matlock for her.
    Sorry man, Cancer is a terrible thing. It really is.

    Hopefully it isn’t far advanced.

    I'm very sorry to hear about your Mom! Cancer sucks, but there is treatment. I went through the same emotions and thought processes as you are having now. Hang in there, stay strong and you have a ton of support here at this site. Unload here all you want!
    Just go for it!

    Damn man, so sorry to hear about this. As others have said, we've come so far in cancer treatments, so the docs should take great care of Momma Van Bundy. Praying for you guys.
