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.

Tulane University online survey - looking for individuals with a cancer diagnosis

The research team at Tulane University is conducting an online survey of individuals with cancer. 

GRACE has been asked to share information about an anonymous one-time online research study about personality and cancer care. They are looking for adults with a history of cancer. A total number of 2,500 individuals will participate in the study, recruited from various social media platforms and websites dedicated to cancer research and patient support.

 

Operations Director for GRACE. Have worked with cancerGRACE.org since July 2009.  Became involved as a caregiver to my best friend, and quickly came to see that GRACE is filling a need in the area of cancer education. 

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.
