How long can you really live with untreated cancer .
« on: February 11, 2014, 02:13:59 PM »
I have had a bad day today , extremely tired and brought all my lymphoma fears back :(

It will be two years in March since this started , can you live that long with an untreated lymphoma ?

im having body/muscle soreness too and worried about cancer.
i had bloodwork done about a month ago and all looked good.
can you talk to your primary care doctor about what noninvasive tests can be done like bloodwork
or whatever diagnoses lymphoma and have a good conversation about how often you could get those
tests or whatever would make you feel better?

i am hoping to do mine every 3-6 months.
just bloodwork.

Tests don't make you feel better because you're not treating the underlying problem.  If you've had negative bloodwork, you do not have lymphoma. 

Treat the disease (anxiety) and NOT the symptoms.
