    Hi, Our 42 year old, healthy, active daughter woke up a few weeks ago with a swollen, red, sore, tingly right arm.  She thought she had slept on it incorrectly and thought it would go away.  As the day wore on, the arm got worse, so she contacted her doctor. They did some scans and tests and discovered she has a blood clot in her right armpit.  Her doctor put her on a blood thinner (Xarelto) and refer...

      PS....I was also going to tell you that if you go to the Oral Cancer page on this site and click on Nasal Cavity, there is quite a bit of information there, just in case your cancer isn't SNUC. Keep us posted.... Best wishes, ljayr

        ARF1974...I'm sorry you had to find this site, but from your post I want to commend you on doing so much research about your nasal cancer.  My brother had SNUC, and if you want to find out alot about SNUC, please consider joining the SNUC Family Facebook page.  It is a wealth of information for those fighting their SNUC battle, survivors, caregivers, etc. all with the common bond of SNUC.  It is a clos...

          Hi brennastonge, I'm sorry for what you are going through with your mom.  It is a hard journey, but please be assured of this...you will never regret all that you are doing for her. Is the Glioblastoma cancerous?  I'm assuming it is since you have said it is Stage 4...???  The American Cancer Society is a great source of resources.  My brother passed away from a rare sinus cancer in February, 20...

            Hello Raken, I just got home from vacation and was catching up on some emails, etc.  What has transpired since your Jan. 6th post?  My brother had sinus cancer, so I may be able to answer some of your questions, but hopefully, your doctor has prescribed some medicine and you are all better by now.  I did find out on this site that anything with the sinuses can also be found in other cancer message boa...

              Hi Diana, Congrats on your 6 year survival from SNUC!  I'm sorry to hear about your MS diagnosis.  Are you in the SNUC family facebook group?  I'd like to hear more about your diagnosis and treatment...but maybe I just need to read your posts further back OR you are already on the group.  My brother was diagnosed with SNUC in August, 2016 and lost his battle February, 2017.  Since it is such...

                  Good morning Lollylegs, I'm so glad to hear your cousin is still with you.  Bless your heart for all you do for him...you are a great, great cousin!  I'm glad that he spoke to you after all that time, and that you got to see his smile.  What a wonderful memory that you will never forget.  His hospice team appears to be going a super job with his medication.  No seizures is so great, even tho...

                    Hi mutt2679 and lollylegs, How are you both doing?  It has been a busy month for me so I haven't been on my computer very much.  Mutt2679, I hope your brothers' wedding went well.  It was a very good touch to have a table set up with your dad's things...he would be so proud of you and the rest of his family.  Lollylegs, what is happening with your cousin?  I see there have not been any messa...

                      One more thing...there are some other posts, although most of them are rather old, under the "Oral Cancer" area of this site.  If you click on Oral Cancer, and then go to Nasal Cavity, you will see some old SNUC posts.
