Possible Bladder Cancer-please Help Me Make Sense Of This?

Postby Rygemann » Tue Oct 10, 2017 5:27 pm

One of my aunts has been ill and losing weight for like 4 months. I don't know how much because I havn't seen her, but there was speculation within the family that she was on cocaine. She was pretty fat before and apparently she's extremely skinny. There was an um...falling out between her and most of the family because she basically abandoned my cousin, and took things of my grandma's after she died last year that were supposed to go to my mother and I, but obviously I didn't want THIS to happen, and my mom is still very close to her. It's hard to get straight information, because she, and her whole family lie a lot. My uncle M(my aunt and mother's brother) and other aunt K (their sister) called my mom asking if she knew that L had cancer. She freaked and called L. Apparently nobody knew until my cousin snooped through aunt L's room and found the meds. She's on radiation pills and I believe antibiotics, and other things. When my mom talked to L, she said that they were finding "cells" but no mass so they thought there was only a chance it could be cancer, but it was probably just stones. She said she was going back for a checkup in a couple weeks and hadn't even missed a day of work. Now this doesn't seem right. I highly doubt they would give radiation pills to someone without knowing if they had cancer, and as far as I know, no amount of kidney or bladder stones are going to be putting off cancer cells. But yet wouldn't she be hospitalized? She could have been without us knowing I suppose. She's also been a very heavy alcoholic for a very long time, but I don't know if she still is. I've only seen her once in the last year, for like 5 minutes, but she seemed to have had a bit to drink. My best guess is that she has Carcinoma In Situ, which would really suck, or that she's really just taking the radiation for overactive thyroid and using this to prevent the other kids from kicking her out of my grandma's house, which they all own and she is living in rent-free. Like I said, my extended family is pretty screwed up, but I would still never want this to happen. Does anyone have a good idea of what's going on?

PS-I used initials only because I don't want people recognizing me from real life

There is no such thing as radiation pills.

What do you mean there are finding ?cells?? What kind of cells and where are they finding them? Bladder cancer is pretty easy to diagnose. No doctor is going to say there is only a chance it could be cancer and come back for a check up in a couple of weeks.None of this makes sense.

CT scans can exhibit melanoma however that doesn't imply they'll exhibit melanoma. Some cancers are without problems visualized with CT. However, extra subtle scans similar to PET and MRI are greater for displaying small tumors in delicate tissue and an ultrasound eval might most of the time be urged for the prostate. The realistic reality is there's no assured system of picking if any one is melanoma unfastened. We might all have melanoma and now not are aware of it till signs reward and the melanoma has sufficiently stepped forward to be detectable. Your signs might advocate melanoma however there are lots of much more likely nonmalignent explanations similar to inflammatory and infectious strategies. If you've a minimum familial melanoma historical past and no earlier cancers, given your age you might now not be anticipated to have melanoma. Hence, you must give up disturbing approximately melanoma and be visible by way of a professional. You could wish to search recommendation approximately support along with your anxiousness as good. Good success and well wellbeing!! ?
