Hello Everyone,

This is my first time on the board. I could really use some help. I am a 2x cancer survivor of breast and anal cancer, i have some physical disabilities as well, i am 50 yrs old, single, never married, no kids. Recently, well, about 1 mth ago, I started having, groin, siatica and hip pain, like you wouldnt believe, being obese, and having edema, i didnt think much of it , but that it was bad sciatica. I went for a rectal and colonoscopy all fine, all body organs seem ok. Then I had an abdomen CT and pelvic, they found a 6.9 x 6.5 round mass, but they said, they didnt know what it was. I have NO bleeding. I have had a pelvic and transvaginal ultra sound and pet/ct scan, the US tech and medical rad doctor didnt know what it was either. I havent heard yet about the pet scan. Tomorrow I am going for a MRI. I just thought to myself, if they are saying its not the ovaries.....and the mass is not in the uterus, or endometrium lining....nor is it the fallopian tubes, and rectal and intestines are fine......could this be vaginal cancer??????? OMG, i am sick over this, what if it is?  They said, the mass.....is behind the uterus and the rectum....isnt that the VAGINAL WALL?????? Has anyone here had vaginal cancer? I am PETRIFIED. Having had breast cancer and anal cancer, I dont know if I could deal with a 3rd.  I am obese and they had tried once to get a biopsy of my uterus and a pap and they couldnt because the radiation i had, shut everything up, scar tissue....when they did the anal cancer, they radiate the OUTSIDE pelvic organs as a precaussion...never told me about dilators to keep things open....remember, this mass they are finding, is ROUND THEY SAID....what in the world could it be, nobody seems to know, im freaking out and crying, and now im starting to think...vaginal cancer? Please someone help me.  IM SO SO SCARED. I have had hip and sciatica pain and groin pain, pacing floors for 4 weeks, day and night.

Hello, I just wanted to reply to you, I cannot answer your questions but what I can say is that you have beaten this disease twice and if the results of the tests show more c you are a strong woman and you will rise up and fight like you have in the past. Please be assured that I am thinking and praying for you, we all are, that you have strength and protection from our Lord to help you through your journey, he will be with you all of the way, you are not alone. Praying that you have answers and treatments coming your way, remember you are never alone. Suzanne
