My roommate's partner, who is a close friend of mine, has stage III terminal brain cancer. He has been symptom free for almost a year but he has recently been showing signs of the cancer advancing, including seizures. He is terrified of dealing with the system of getting treatment, and has been turned down for disability even though he is unable to work because of the cancer. How can we help? [more inside]
Short of raising his paw and saying, "Yo, mom, I'm ready to die," how will my dog let me know that it's time? [more inside]

Vet found a hard mass in our dog's anal gland (sorry you just had to read anal gland). Could possibly be Anal Sac Adenocarcinoma, could be benign tumor. Looking for as much information as possible, including how risky it is for a 12 year old dog (collie/shepard -ish mix) to have to go through surgery. [more inside]
I've got a 14-year-old male indoor cat with a large lump inside his mouth, on his cheek. He doesn't seem to notice or care much—he's been eating/drinking and behaving normally (alpha male). He accidentally bites down on it sometimes and causes it to bleed. It's not a substantial amount of blood, but that doesn't seem healthy. [more inside]
I have been diagnosed with stage 2 glioma/astrocytoma (brain cancer). I would love to find some good blogs from people who have gone through the treatment and experience of brain cancer, but I've been having trouble with the search. Links would be much appreciated! I've looked at "Blog for a Cure" and there are few that are updated. I've found more by googling but many are inapplicable. Thanks in advance for your help.
My 10 year old cat has a hard, unmovable tumor on his breast bone. I am unsure where to go from here. [more inside]
I had a large non-cancerous tumor removed a few years ago. The tumor and the two surgeries required to remove it left me unable to work for a year and $50,000 in debt. [more inside]
Not that any human would ever do this, but what would happen if someone ate a cancerous tumor? Like, if they waited around a surgical room, and it was removed from someone's breast, or pancreas. Would the stomach acids kill it? Could the person get cancer by eating it?
How worried should I be? (You are not my doctor.) [more inside]
