Dear Elizabeth. Thank you for contacting Health24. As a cancer survivor you should see your treating physician at least once a year to monitor your progress and general health. This is also to ensure that your cancer does not recur. During such a visit you may have various tests done, e.g. mammogram, Pap smear, blood tests, etc. During one of your follow-up visits would be the ideal time to request the doctor to look at the various issues that you may have, including the symptoms which you describe in your message. I would like to suggest that you make an appointment right away with your treating physician for a follow-up visit and at the same time to request him/her to investigate the health problems listed in your request to Health24. Your treating physician has your previous history on file and will be better placed to be able to make a diagnosis - it is practically impossible to make a diagnosis without a physical examination, maybe even some tests, as well as questioning the patient.
