Kindled and Confused
I Have Cancer, but I don't want to tell anyone, I feel alone?
Hi, I'm 18 and I have just been diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer,

My mom is the only person that knows, and I can't talk to her about it without her getting emotional. I have been remotely strong for a couple of days, but I don't know how to tell anyone.

I also dis-like pitty parties, and attention, I'm not a shy person, but I feel like all my friends and Family have enough to worry about, my cancer will only plague there minds with more fear and sadness. . .

Who can I talk to about this? Are there programs with Cancer patients/survivors that can help me vent about my fears of this illness?

Thanks, much help would be appreciated <3

I don't know how early I caught it, The tumor was rather large, and I had noticed it for over a year now, there going to remove my Thyroid, and then radiation. . .

And The Third comment, I'm still a virgin, by choice,

I'm sorry but you shouldn't tell anybody. Thyroid Cancer can be treated!

there is no need to tell to anyone, try to forget that you have an illness.... you can just live as a normal person...

i would pray for you, and ask from god to give you cure :)
be strong ,,man..!

Yes, there are cancer survivors groups in local areas that you can join, note: most of the attendees are over the age of 40. Look them up - online. They will understand and be very supportive. They often know what treatments work and what doesn't work - cause they have been through it.

Most cancers do not have to be "terminal" and there are many things you can do for yourself - to keep your immune system healthy.

I saw this the other day; Have you considered: http://cancertutor.com/Cancer02/Simoncini.html

Sorry for asking but did you catch it early?

Dang man, that really stinks - i'll pray for you.

edit : http://csn.cancer.org/

Such bad news, I feel for you, have you had a second opinion,? There are other ways apart from radiation.
Don't be rushed into treatment without getting all the facts.
All the best.

i'm sorry about your news.... its terrible but im sure you will get through this if you are strong inside, you have everything going for you at 18, youth is a good thing to have on your side when it comes to illness.
i found this forum where you can talk to other cancer patients.
hope this helps and i wish you and all your family the best.

Check out different places in your area, I'm sure if you can't find them online a local dr or hospital will have a list of places w/these programs. There are also a ton of places online. Eventually you may have to tell your friends and family. Don't wait too long, you can't keep them in the dark forever. I hope you get better!!! My best friend found out she had cancer when she was 16. It was taken care of and hasn't come back yet. That was 4 yrs ago. The tumor was taking up her entire stomach and goin itno her chest. She had it since birth so if that can be handled it shows almost anything is possible! Good Luck!

There should be a support group through your hospital for people dealing with cancer. My dad's been fighting cancer for 6 years and we've gotten really good help by going to a group for people with his particular cancer.

What you're feeling is normal and you should be able to work past it. I have a similar personality to yours and you need to try to see it from your friends' perspectives. How would you feel if someone you really cared about was going through a really hard time but didn't tell you? People feel better at being able to help others--you'll be robbing them of the opportunity to help you and show you how much they care about you.

Hang in there, you're going to get through this. I have a friend who had thyroid cancer and for him it was just a pretty short time of being ill and needing surgery and some chemo and now his life is back to normal. As far as cancers go, I think thyroid cancer is very treatable.

Find a support group, that will definitely help! Any local hospital should have a list or even your doctor's office should have some resources.

Oh wow....you must be going through a lot right now. I am sorry. I have a family member who was diagnosed with leukemia and it is a lot to process. Talk to your oncologist as they should have a list of resources available for you. usually the hospital will as well.

Also, here is a website designated to teens with cancer. Hopefully you will find it useful as it has a useful links section in the 'I can deal with it section' as well as discussion boards and teen connections in the 'Talk Back' section http://www.teenslivingwithcancer.org/cancerFacts/

Also, here is a link another website that might be helpful. It is titled 'Group loop. Teens. Talk. Cancer. Online' - http://www.grouploop.org/default_flash.php

I'm sorry for what you're going through. I'm also sorry to say, but cancer is a family and friend affair. Everyone should know or will know, and it won't be a pity party. Everyone will care about you though, and help you, and just want to be near you to support you. My nephew who is also young, he's 21 now, is a survivor to testicular cancer, and going through this, it is definitely something where everyone pools together resources and helps each other. I'm not sure what you're course of treatment will be, but your mom is going to have to get over the emotional part a bit, get it together and help you through it every step. There are many Cancer support groups, and every local hospital has something like that or can refer you. Perhaps your family can go together so they can know what to do.
I can't believe you think your sickness shouldn't be the priority of your loved ones worries! You're not imposing....You need people right now. This will overshadow what ever is going on in their lives. As it should!

I understand your not wanting to tell anyone. They might 'pity' or become sad and emotional, or start avoiding you or ?? All kinds of thoughts going through your mind. Been there :-( . It took me a very long time to tell my friends and family that I have/had ovarian cancer and now tnbc breast cancer. And it's still a little hard to talk to Dad, he does get sad about it, I can tell, and Mom still gets emotional, but talk about it together.. we do ! We must ! This is when we can and should share our fears and anxieties with family. Having said all this, I must admit I don't know a thing about your family, but from what little you've said, it sounds like they care and they love you. Question; if any of your friends, loved ones or relatives were to , God forbid, get cancer, would you want them to tell you ??
This site I'm going to give you is a bit different from the traditional support sites. But, it has literally saved my life, not to mention my sanity !
Go to this website, follow the instructions to join, it's free, and, once you are online, please ask for a person named Fayandria Foley. She is a most amazing woman as are ALL the people in the group. Tell her that Spaciva sent you ! :-D There is no end to the information and support you can find there. A better group of people I've never known, I thank God every day that I have found these people and we can share and laugh and love and learn and cry together.
And hon, there is no reason at all you should go through this alone. We are a family ! Good luck and all my prayers and hugggs


YA Junkie
I am so sorry to hear about your situation. I have a long-term illness, and I know how important it is (at least for me) to have a support group. In these kind of groups, you have the great opportunity to meet people in a situation that is very similar to yours.

There are numerous support groups that you can join. I don't know where you live. Some groups you might be able to attend in person. Then there are online support groups. There will be some overlap between the first and second links below. You may have to sort through a lot of different websites to find what is best for you.

Cancer Support Groups

Cancer Support Groups Online

Gilda's Club (cancer support group)

Besides groups, you might find it helpful to talk to a private therapist. At cancercare.org, you will find information about finding a therapist who specializes in helping people with cancer. This service is provided for free.

If you enjoy reading, you can take a look at a wonderful book called Love, Medicine & Miracles by Dr. Bernie Siegel. He has many other books, plus CDs. Take a look at berniesiegelmd.com.

Besides conventional medicine, you might find out if alternative medicine can help you in any way. I am NOT suggesting you give up conventional medicine, but perhaps you can find some alternative approaches that can add to the effectiveness of conventional medicine. Maybe you can get some information about this at Dr. Siegel's website. You can also try drweil.com.

I am not sure what to tell you about sharing your diagnosis with friends and family. It is a very difficult decision. However, it is not a decision you have to make today. Getting in touch with a psychotherapist or a support group might be your first step. The therapist and group members are likely to share their experiences and advice with this dilemma.

Your intuition may lead you to a family member or friend who you can confide in. Probably you will want to tell them to keep your health issue completely confidential.

I send you love and prayers.

You might want to try talking to a counselor, or the Samaritans. They're great to talk to when you're feeling alone. Its completely understandable that you don't want to feel like a burden- but if you were put in the same position by someone you love- you would want to know.

I was 19 when they discovered a tumor on my thyroid. Don't ever be afraid to talk about it. I know how emotional you get. I also had breast cancer and I am about to have a second mastectomy. It is a very emotional subject but don't bottle up your feelings. There are support groups that are so helpful. My thyroid was also removed. You will be on medication for the rest of your life, like me, to replace the thyroid hormone. Being a virgin has nothing to do with your condition. I wish you the best. One more thing, Once the thyroid was removed, no cancer came back in the parathyroid or anything. I didn't need radiation either. I don't know what your doctors will recommend, but whatever they do recommend, follow their instructions. You are in my prayers.
EDIT Just one more thing, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. There are many people willing to listen to you, myself included. I know what it's like being a teen and facing this, but the outcome is usually good when caught in time. Even on this forum, many people are willing to support you. Be blessed

I'm sorry about this, my mother had breast cancer last year, and now she is healed. It's normal not wanting to upset your friends and family and you don't want to feel pitied, but having your friends and family backup you up in this hard time it's the best thing for you and your mother. Sit down with her and tell her that you both have to face reality.
I hope everything works out for you

It is nearly not the end of the world. All you need is a little motivation and courage to do things that cheer you up. A single mindset heals anything, man. Believe it!

I found a link below, please take a look. I am not sure which stage you're in though but less worry is better and help your body healing system work better and faster.

You will not be able to hide that you have cancer. The 'secret' is already beginning to eat at you . . the only way through this is to be open and straight forward . . you have cancer. You are being treated for cancer. Take this opportunity to educate people . . many have absolutely no idea how to behave around you or how to treat the situation. Just be normal. It is far more shocking to those who have never dealt with cancer to realize that the majority of cancer patients are mostly normal during the entire process.

You should be treated by a Adolescent and Young Adult cancer specialist as they will be able to tend to your unique needs as a young person with cancer. They will be able to steer you towards support groups for young people so that you will not feel so isolated.

There are also many online support groups for young adults your age with message boards or who will direct you for help:
Planet Cancer

I'm too young for this

Young adults with cancer

Livestrong: Young adults with cancer podcasts

ASCO: Cancer in teenagers

Teens living with cancer
