Bartholins gland cancer.

Started by Anonymous on 28 June 2015 at 14:54

I have recently had surgery, Chemo and radiotherapy for stage 3 cancer of the Bartholins gland. My surgery involved removing the tumour and the lymph nodes from my right leg. This is a very rare cancer and I want to get in touch with anyone who has been through a similar experience.

    Living with a rarer cancer can sometimes feel an isolating experience. There are fewer people around who can understand the trials and tribulations of experiencing a rare cancer first hand - and much of the public's focus is on the more common types, which have seemingly more support and charity funding.

    You may find some contacts via the resources referred to in this webpage on vulval cancer from Cancer Research UK, and the Rarer Cancer Foundation have a newly formed forum which states that 'We will try our best to answer your questions, find out information for you and try to locate other patients with a similar cancer so that you can talk together and share experiences'.

    In the meantime, anyone of our members who are experiencing a similar cancer, do get in touch....either via this conversation thread or by personal message.

    Warm wishes
