I have a football sized tumor in my stomach and a tumor in my throat doctors wont treat. I also am anemic & regularly need transfusions
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have fibromialgia which causes me widespread nerve pain every day, but that I've made peace with. I am also anemic and I lose so much blood each month on my period that I have to get transfusions and stay in the hospital, no one can tell me why I am suddenly anemic after not being so my entire life, doctors just keep telling me to hope I hit menopause soon, but this is not normal. I have a tumor in my stomach that is benign but is the size of a football and because it is so large it causes a lot of pain and discomfort and pushes on my other organs causing digestive and intestinal problems. I cannot have it removed because I don't have insurance and it's not life threatening so it just continues to grow. I also have a tumor in my throat that doctors have said "is probably malignant based on its positioning", which causes me to be unable to eat anything solid some days or throw food back up, and causes pain much of the time, but I have been unable to find help or even answers about that as well.
