Cancer with Unknown Primary (CUP)

Shocked... Confused... Depressed...

I was diagnosed cancer in my swollen lymph nodes under my right arm last Monday based on the result of needle biopsy.  However, they could not find any obvious abnormalities in mammogram and breast ultrasound.  

MRI breast and CT scan chest/abdomen/pelvis were recommended, but again could not find any obvious abnormalities apart from the cancer in the swollen lymph nodes.  Currently the diagnosis is cancer with unknown primary (CUP).  I am being referred to oncologists and am now waiting for the appointment.

I'm in shock, confused and depressed... would like to make some friends who share similar experience...
