4 days  before Christmas last was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer and neck cancer. Now just been advised have secondary bone cancer in my right shoulder which has spread to the upper arm.To say I'm bricking  it is an understanding. 

I had my second MRI on the shoulder area and cried while undertaking it.

I'm 55 year old man and dont mind admitting have cried buckets since this started.


What I was wondering does anyone have a natural remedies for the pain?


  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    It sounds like you've been through a very difficult time recently and it's perfectly natural to feel scared. I don't know any natural remedies for pain but have you spoken to your hospital team? They wouldn't want you to be in pain and will be able to prescribe something to help.

    It would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and treatment to date into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
