Your symptoms are kind of all over the map and don't fit neatly into one specific diagnosis IMO. Constipation isn't usually a common symptom of leukemia or lymphoma, but the lumps you feel could be enlarged lymph nodes...most likely caused by something other than cancer. Have you seen a specialist? If you continue to feel the lumps and have that uncomfortable feeling above your navel, it might be good to see a gastroenterologist. It seems reasonable to me to ask about having a colonoscopy, but maybe the specialist will have a better suggestion. Are you staying well hydrated and eating lots of fiber? Are you avoiding foods that are known to cause it (like cheese)?
In order to know if a lump is cancerous a biopsy must be done on it. However, your doctor may avoid that if you have no other symptoms that suggest cancer is a possibility. Good luck and please keep us posted on what you find out.
I agree. They are. The only consistency is that the lump in my throat and the constipation happened at the same time. So I have since seen my PCP three times. I have had a soft tissue xray, no abnormalities. I have had an ultrasound of my throat, nothing showed. She even asked me again where I was feeling the lump when I swallow. My thyroid looks great, no nodes and my glands are fine.
The constipation has gotten much much better with Dual Action Cleanse. I have been taking an herbal cleanse. And its really helping. But, I have noticed that my stools are still not a normal consistency. And most days now I feel MUCH better, but I still notice that my abdomen seems to stick out more than it did before.
So now I am thinking that I am going to have him take a different approach and have them look at my abdomen. Perhaps it is GERD and I am just not text book symptomatic. I don't have reflux or heartburn often. If at all. But my stomach still is not totally right. And I do have ringing in my right ear which is bugging me to death.
Weirdest thing I have ever dealt with. Also scheduling a chiropractic apt to see if getting adjusted will help things at all.
I have no weight loss or gain to speak of. I have no jaundice
