My husband went to the doc. yesterday. They found a mass in his stomach that they believe is cancer. They did a biopsy and we will have the results in 3-5 days. His grandfather died of stomach cancer at a young age (40ish I believe). I’m trying not to freak out, because it’s not a for sure thing yet. But the Doctors told hubby that they think it’s probably cancer. We’ve been married for less than 2 months. Have been dating for 6 years. He’s only 25. I’m so scared.
Has anyone else been though something like this? I needed to get it out, we aren’t telling the family until we know for sure what the diagnosis is.

Wow, I am so sorry you’re dealing with this – that must be really hard! I hope everything turns out okay!

I’m so sorry that happened to you! I hope that it early enough that he can be treated for it without complications. I’m sure that the procedure and treatment has improved greatly since his grandfather was young. You are in our thoughts.

Oh goodness. My very best friend in the whole world and her fiance (who is my fiance’s best friend in the whole world) had a mole on the back of his neck that my bff asked him to get checked out for months and months. He finally got it checked and it ended up being malignant melanoma. They waited a week for results to see if the cancer had spread, and (thanks be to God) it had not. He had the mole removed and now has a huge scar, but is fine.
Although it was not my own fiance, it may as well have been, we are all so close. I know what you are going through and there is nothing more tough. Luckily your fiance is only 25, and a young body is very capable of fighting things.
My prayers are with you.

I am so sorry to hear this! It sounds like they caught it early, he is young, and cancer treatment has come a very long way from what it was when his grandfather had cancer. I think your husband has a really great chance of pulling through this! I wish you all the luck in the world!

Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry! I can’t even imagine how scared you both must be, and waiting is the worst. I do agree with missasb though – things are a lot different now, so I’m sure outcomes have certainly improved since his grandfather had it.
I’ll be thinking of you both!!

divinemissE: first, my thoughts are with you, second, my father had a mass in his stomach that was cancerous. they did surgery, took it out and he’s been fine ever since…I’m not sure what kind of cancer it was but his recovery was pretty quick and he’s been ok since…I’ll send you some good vibes…

Thank you so much ladies. You are all such a wonderful support group to have.
@Leelee: Thank you. That is exactly what I needed to hear. I know that we will get through this. I’ve already told him he’s not allowed to die. We have too much life left to live.
I’d like to think I’m dealing with it fairly well. The waiting is the worst (and it hasnt’ been a full day yet). One day at a time, right?

We’re all thinking of you. I also echo what Rabbit said, the treatments have come a long way since then. But worry about that step if you get to it. sending good vibes your way.

((HUGS)) no one our age should have to deal with this. but yes, cancer treatment has come a long way and if it is cancer, then you need to strong for him. I read an article in a Cosmo (I think this months) about a girl who fell in love with someone who had leukemia (or something else toerable but incurable) and they had 10 good years. The last few months before he died, they kept asking each other questions to really get to know each others hopes and dreams.
I am not saying this is anything like your situation, but make sure you talk to each other, about anything and everything. Spend as much time together as you can cuddling and talking, and that will help the next few days go by. Keep doing it, and you’ll have all these hopes and dreams to look forward to, and you’ll know so much about each other it’ll bring you closer.
You can and will get through this. Sending powerful good vibes your way

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Waiting is the worst, it’s a very scary situation but once you know, you can take action, do whatever needs to be done. We’re all thinking of you and wish you and your husband the best.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this, especially so young!
Hopefully the doctor’s caught things soons enough that he will be able to get treatment and recover quickly.
Keep us posted on the results!
