Lymph Node Cancer

So yeah... my niece got diagnosed with this 2 days ago, so I'm trying to get as much info out of it as I can. Has anyone ever experienced this before?

The more knowledge I can get from this, the better prepared I can be for whatever happens. Thanks in advance.

That's horrible man. I wouldn't be in any position to help or give advice, but you have my thoughts.

Sorry to hear that. I guy I used to work with had lymphatic cancer. He's been in remission for a couple of years now after chemo and an operation to remove the nodes. It took it out of him, but he's doing pretty well these days. Best wishes to your niece.

Very sorry to hear. I hope they've caught it early and are able to put a stop to it relatively easily. Not all that knowledgeable really, but I've always heard that the lymph nodes are not a good place for it to be or get to as that can be like the expressway for cancer to try to spread elsewhere.

If it's anything like what my girlfriend got...try and get her into actual cancer-fighting treatment ASAP. Push for stuff to be moved up if she's healthy enough to stand the treatment. Try to not let them screw you around with wasting time on this.

I'm gonna go try to see her tomorrow morning, so if I get any information, I'll keep you all posted.

Thanks for the words so far. She's only f*ckin' 19 years old. Just started college last fall.

I got to see her today. They're still testing her to make sure for the final diagnosis. I'll just do my best to prepare for the worst.

Speaking of worse, I just found out another friend of mine committed suicide last Tuesday. This week officially sucks.

"When it rains, it pours," I guess. Sorry to hear about your friend, too.


19?? That poor girl, nobody deserves that. Try to keep positive and encouraging, for her sake, at least in front of her.

Sorry to hear about your friend, too. My advice for your niece is if it is bad news, the best you can do is spend as much time with her as possible and cherish the time you do have. I hope things work out though.

So it turns out it wasn't lymphoma, but a different form of soft tissue cancer. One of the rarest in the world:

Synovial sarcoma.

I'm so sorry you're having such an awful time, hun. I hope your niece's condition is in an early enough stage that it can be taken care of. I lost my nephew a few years back to neuroblastoma... you know how to contact me if you need to talk/vent.

Thank you guys. Sorry, I'm not one to put out personal sh*t nowadays. I did that enough with my own condition a few years back.

You guys are family enough to know what's going on, though.

So sorry to hear about this. I got a couple young cousins around that age and even though I'm not too close with them it'd break my heart if they had something like that. Best of luck to you and your niece.

I'm right there with you on this past week being horrible.

My girlfriend of a great many years had cancer found in her last month and it killed her last week. Then a few hours after her funeral, her dad died in the back yard. It's pretty ****ed.

Hopefully you get a happier story.

Cruel sh*t, man. I find it funny how Superman can save the world, but he can't cure a disease. That's the real flaw. Kind of a metaphor of life itself, I guess. It isn't right.
