Default Cancer (tis a sensitive topic I know)

Okay, so, hello dear Kidpubbians. The reason I made this thread is because I (surprise!) have a cancer scare. Yep. I went to the doctor a couple days ago, and I've got the symptoms for myelodedysplastic syndrome (don't think I spelled it right) (Info on that here). The symptoms are very vague though-- I don't even have anemia-- but lately I've been inching down the scale and having shortness of breath. So it is not determined whether or not I do have MDS.
Anyway, thank you for taking the time out of your day to view this failure of a thread. :P

I'm so sorry that you have to go through this.
Just think positive. Hope that you don't have it.
I'll be here for you.

I had a similar thing happen to me. There was this bump growing on ny neck and we weren't sure what it was. My dad and mom said it might be a really bad thing. But it turned out to be fine.

It was just a cyst, I bet. I have one on my finger, and it's just like, "WHAT ARE YOU, MR. BUMP?"
But yeah, my appetite has also gone down a bit. Which is really weird, since I used to always be hungry (it's a teenager thing, I bet). So, yeah, it's kinda freaky. It's also really REALLY weird that this all started happening after I read The Fault in Our Stars and This Star Won't Go Out. Mom was like, "Maybe your brain is tricking you into thinking--" "Um, no. I would still be eating everything if I was making this up." *facepalm* Just because I have Asperger's doesn't mean I WANT a life-threatening disorder.
My Mom really isn't that bad. She just kind of misunderstands me a lot.

Haha I have one on my finger too. But the bump on my neck was all red and a getting really black over time. It's still there, though. I have tinnitus (I think I spelled that wrong) in both ears, and just found out after searching up "Ringing in ears".
About the appetite, maybe it's normal? For one thing, I know that I have been eating more than before, but I guess that doesn't help.
I wish I could help as much as I can, but I'm just not a good comforter. O.o

It's alright. I think the one of my finger is from writing? (It's on my right hand.) I saw a thing for tinnitus on TV yesterday... I think everyone has, like, occasional ringing in their ears but for people with tinnitus it's constant? Bleh, I don't know. Did you ever find out what that thing was?

The bump on my neck was from a mosquito bite that got dirty? That's what my doctor said was possible. Or it was a mole or something. But it creeps me out. O.o
Yeah, tinnitus causes constant ringing in ears and can cause possible deafness in the future. That's what scares me.
When I go to sleep or when it's really quiet or even when I'm walking on the streets, the ringing's really loud and sometimes bothers me. But I'm used to it now. I think of it as something special about me.

Aha like now, the ringing's starting up.
Websites I searched up said to play constant music and do yoga and eat pineapples, but there isn't a specific cure.
