I have Cancer. Let’s Talk.

by Ed Cohen You find out someone has cancer, how do you speak to them? In April, I had a biopsy to remove a lymph node from my neck.  I had been feeling fatigued for the past three years, something I thought was a direct result of too much travel.  At that time I was commuting to and from India every month.  I would go to work at HCL Technologies in Delhi, India for 4 to 5 weeks then return home to San Diego to work remotely for 4 to 5 weeks. I even wrote a post about it called “5 signs you have Perpetual Jetlag.” Worn down, I left the position and re-joined Nelson Cohen Global Consulting.  Over the next 2 years, chronic fatigue, fevers and other symptoms left me with the ability to only work part-time. I visited the doctor one week after the surgery and he informed that the results had come back abnormal but with no diagnosis.  The same thing had happened in 2012 when I had nodes removed from under my arm.  When I asked “what’s next,” he replied, “We decided to send the tissue sample on to Stanford Medical for further analysis.” A week passed, then two. Finally the doctor called, “We received your results from Stanford.  The diagnosis is Hodgkins Lymphoma. You have a rare form called Nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphoma. Only 500 people a year are diagnosed with it in the U.S. which is why it was hard to diagnose” Stunned, I had no idea what to say.  After three years of feeling ill, without knowing why, there was finally an answer. It was way too... read more
