Please feel free to comment or ask a question!

Welcome to the new GRACE site!

Here we hope to provide a place for our community members that go beyond lung cancer.  Our amazing faculty is building and we would like to share their knowledge with others, to provide a place for those dealing with other types of cancers. 

Share our forum with others, and please consider this a safe place to discuss and ask questions about living with cancer.  

Colon Cancer With Possible Metastasis

I am inquiring on behalf of my sister-in-law who was diagnosed with stage three colon and rectal cancer in July 2020. She is 53 years old and a former smoker. She underwent chemotherapy for six months, followed by six weeks of radiation, and in April 2020 she had surgery to remove the tumor in her sigmoid. At that time, 17 od her lymph nodes were removed and all were clear, so she was restaged to stage two.

Incidental finding

Happy Sunday all. I'm new and trying to figure what is going on with me and an "incidental" finding from February 21, 2020. I have a host of spine issues from cervical to my lower lumbar and sciatic joint. I've been treated by an orthopedic doctor for my cervical spine and lumbar spine issues. In February of this year a cervical ct scan was done. When the scan was read and a report was written on the findings. I went back to my orthopedic doctor and he gave me the information on the report. Which I was already aware of. After numerous injections and pt I'm still not pain free.
