Jay Elsten - Neuroendocrine Tumor - Mayo Clinic


Jay Elsten - Neuroendocrine Tumor - Mayo Clinic

It started subtly — no sign anything was amiss, just some itching and rashes developing on both of Jay Elsten’s legs. A trip to his primary care physician in 2012 led to an initial diagnosis of hepatitis, a prescription for antibiotics and a recommendation to call again if Jay were not feeling better in a few days.

This led to more tests, including a CT scan, and the location of a tumor on his pancreas — either adenocarcinoma or neuroendocrine — and a decision of where to go next. To learn more about neuroendocrine tumor treatment at Mayo Clinic, visit:

The tumors’ presentation in patients is so unique that some will experience diarrhea or pain from the tumors, while others will have no symptoms and the tumors are discovered during an imaging exam for something else. Some tumors are slow-growing, others are aggressive. Neuroendocrine tumors can secrete hormones, which are the source of many of the symptoms patients experience.

Medical Scare - Do I Have Colon Cancer

I tell my story about going through the process of getting a colonoscopy and how scared I was. When you go to the doctor to see why you're sick, you never think it can be anything bad. In my case, I was given a warning and told how to change my life. Experience this with me as I tell what I went through and how I felt.

Always keep an eye on your health. If something does not feel right, make sure you get it checked out. Could be something simple or something life threatening. Things can and do happen at any age. Medical crises do not discriminate when it comes to age.

Below is a link from Mayo Clinic that explains the symptoms and beyond about colon cancer. Even if you aren't experiencing g any symptoms it is always good to be aware of them. You or someone you may know could be affected.
