Hi there, I was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer in May 2001 and since then have done a lot of research. The one thing I want to share with you and your husband is to stop taking diary products - I read that in Jane Plant's book, YOur life in your hands. She is a Professor from Britain, a researcher. The other book that might help is A woman's guide to healing from breast cancer by Nan Lu. I learn a lot from this book. Take care, Joanna

I have just discovered your CancerCompass message of Oct 8, 2003. I am a male who had breast cancer in 1998. I had a mastectomy, took tamoxifen for five years, and I am still cancer free. How did your husband fare? I hope he is still with you and healthy. If either of you would like to correspond with another man who had breast cancer, please reply. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. Lyn onein100

I'm a 40 yr old male with a sore left nipple with about a  2cm lump behind it. I've noticed it for a month.What concerns me is that I've had Hodgkins and non-H lymphomas (chemo and rituxan, respectively), both in the past five years, in remission, take immunosuppression for a lung transplant, and have other risks that greatly increase my chance of getting any type of cancer. While the lump is a symptom, the pain would seem to indicate  something else, although it could just be irritation from the stiffness of the nipple. No discharge, discoloration, inversion, or other things. Did you discover your condition with a lump? where was it, and did it hurt at all (or could you feel it on your chest?)? I'm wondering whether to raise it with my doctors and am concerned about seeming like a hypochondriac. It's been there for a month, as I said, and I have a lot of other problems that I should otherwise concern myself with. WH
