didgens Posted May 5, 2014 Share Posted May 5, 2014 Hi All ,, havn't been checking in on you all. The update on my son is that there isn't one. He has had 1 minor CH since having all 4 wisdom teeth removed. But the same thing happened last year at this time. The test will come in June/July when he got the most in a row he's ever had. So I will let you know if anything changes there. However the reason I havn't checked in is because my husband was just diagnosed with Lung Cancer. Not looking for sympathy but there is something interesting here. He has a very rare type of lung cancer called a Pancoast tumor. He has been suffering almost a year with this and been mis-diagnosed by 7 doctors. It wasn't until I googled his symptoms and found that they match a Pancoast tumor that we left our network of doctors and went to UCLA medical center and he was diagnosed. What was the symptom that I caught and all the other doctors missed ???? Horner Syndrome .. yep .. you should all know that as a drooping eyelid, sweat on one side and not the other ,, and dialiated pupil. (don't panic .. unless you have pain in your sholder blade that radiates down your ulnar nerve im sure you don't have a pancoast tumor). However when I looked up Horner syndrome, besides a pancoast tumor another cause is Cluster headache. Now my husbands horners is being caused by the tumor in the upper apex of his lung pushing on the sympathetic chain in the brachial plexus. Just thought I would mention this as perhaps the problem isn't in the brain at all. anyway ,, I just thought id mention as something to consider. be well Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
