Does My Friend Have Cancer?

Postby owain » Wed Oct 11, 2017 9:09 am

My friend is a 16 years old girl. For the passed 3 weeks she has had about 20-30 of these large circular red marks on her skin, around her upper arm and shoulder. And around those areas there have been bumps. Pollysporn doesn't work. She has also been having fevers, tho they only last for short periods of time. Her breathing has been normal, but she has been coughing and losing her voice. No change in her bowel movements or any abnormal bleeding. She has been losing the sense to eat, tho that is not unusual for her.

Please answer asap! This is crucial!

She is 16, so it could be something else. Not all circular red marks are cancer. She should go to an doctor and maybe he founds out that it's only something in her puberty.

It's nice that you're worried about your friend, but don't think so bad. After she got her checkout you'll see that almost everything will be okay..

If one clinical professional is telling her that she needs chemotherapy and yet another one is telling her to in common words take a pill to assist her bones, there is actual an situation there. Her kinfolk clinical professional ought to were incorrect contained in the analysis, or overly positive contained in the analysis. by the sounds of it someone has their wires bypass with 3 completely varieties of maximum cancers. outdoors her lung appears like a tumor, actual fluids appears like blood maximum cancers (leukemia?) and bone maximum cancers... relying on her age, this seems very not likely and yet another opinion or perhaps vacationing to a wide city clinical institution must be recommended.
