I want to know how one enforces a doctor to do thorough tests fo cancer. I was diagnosed with Colits which took a decade - over 5 years to diagnose. I was mocked, laughed at, told I was mad - everything until I was fully diagnosed - then told very little. I am aware it throws up different sptoms but I've been having a blockage in my neck for a while over 6 years now - lyph glands in neck. I'm turning deaf it seems as I keep getting tenitus, I was told if I get shin pain or discomfort at A&E there was a problem but my docotr sees this all as a joke. I'm coughing with a nasty rasping sound - I have mould too on walls which could contribute to this.
My aunt died from cancer last weekend and it was so late they diagnosed this, there was nothing they could do for her as it progressed so far - she was a radiologist!
I'm stuck as I cannot get the doctors to take me serioulsy. My blood tests show small variances - e.g low white blood cells but it seems all down to 'colits'.
I always feel sick and food makes me ill at times. I also get dizzy spells and a constant running nose - mucous running on the side of the lymph glad nostril.
I'm very worried as it's been there for years and it could be related to my brain but again the doctors are beyond stupid over here. I was told I was mad for havig syptoms relating to colitis when they couldn't source the issue - literally, they told me I was imagining things - I'm a black wona so it's even harder - I'm now in 30's.
