    I had surgery and radiation for left bartholin gland cancer in 2007. Everything has been great until this past week. I have started to bleed from the right bartholin gland now. That was what happened with the left. Has anyone else had treatment for this cancer and had it pop up again 9 yrs. (10 in Spring 2017) later? My gyn onc is off for the Holiday period. I can't get an appt. until Jan. 16th and I'm starting to wo...

    I have mgus. I have had oral thrush for 6 weeks now. I've been taking both nystatin (oral) for all 6 weeks, and diflucan (pill) for 4 weeks. Has anyone had this happen to them? What did you do to finally get rid of it? Was this an indication that your abnormal protein number was going up? Thanks for any help.

      I agree that you should push for more testing. I had a clear mammogram, clear screening mammogram and clear ultrasound. But, I could feel the lump and swollen lymph nodes. My maternal Grandmother and her sister both died of breast cancer. My mother died young so we don't know if she would have have gotten it too. I've had bartholin gland cancer 7 years ago so I've learned to be proactive. I went to the breast surgeon...

        Has anyone ever gotten melanoma on their lower lip? If so, did it start out looking like just a small white dot and then morph into a long, flat blister like sore?

          It was adenocarcinoma.

            I am 7 years out from Bartholin gland cancer. I had surgery, lymph node dissection and pelvic radiation. In the past couple of months I've have developed a cough, fatigue and pain between my shoulder blades. The cancer had spread to my groin lymph nodes, that's why I had the radiation but now I'm worried about mets to my lungs. Both my gym onc. and radiation onc. Said my type of cancer could metastasize to my liver o...

              Take heart, you will get better. You have not had enough time to heal, especially if I'm right and it is nerve pain you are dealing with. But, you really haven't had enough time to just heal from the surgery either. I don't know what I would have done if I couldn't work from home. If you haven't noticed any improvement by next week definitely call your Doc. If the pain gets much worse before next week, then call your...

                It sounds like some nerve pain going down your leg and into your knee. You might want to ask your doc about it. If they aggravated a nerve during surgery it will just take some time to heal. Hope you do well at work. I too have a sitting job and a lot of the time I work from my home office. That helped me a lot. If I couldn't take it anymore I just jumped (well, not jumped) into the tub. I wish you all the best.

                  I had bartholin gland cancer and had a vulvectomy and lymph node removal in late Jan. of 2007. You might see some of my older posts on this board. I also had to undergo 5 weeks, 5 days a week of radiation treatment. I was lucky that I could work from home. I too sat in the tub, probably 4-5 times a day. I couldn't sand the itching and the pain. I had to wear dresses and skirts but could not wear underwear, it was a&n...

                    I haven't been on this board for quite awhile. I am 6 years out from Bartholin Gland Cancer diagnosis, surgery & radiation. I've had a couple of biopsies taken in the vulvar area over the years since but they were benign. About 6-8 weeks ago I started having shooting pains in the area of my clitoris and on both sides of my vagina. I also am unable to achieve an orgasm. I also feel like I have trouble emptying my...
