- With a history of squamous cancer and pilonidal cyst and neuro issues should i be concerned ?
I have had a long history of bleeding from above anus, neuro issues like brain tingle and cognitive movement disorder, lumbar pain and weakness, buttock, groin, leg tingling and weakness. Cold feet. Anemic. My concern is this bleed from previously repaired pilonidal cyst has been chronic for years. My research indicates squamous cell cancer is an 80% causative factor in chronic pilonidal irritation/cyst. Since I was diagnosed w squamous nail bed in 2012, amputation 2014, should I be concerned. ? Doctor is unaware of cyst / bleed history. I am obese, but remarkably losing weight ... Loss of appetite. I am positive for esophageal metaplastic changes. Also urinary incontinence mild. Obviously I am concerned about metastatic cancer. No pain in lower spine. Just constant leg and buttock ache / tingle. I thought bleed was hemorrhoids. Not. Ca the mortician ?? Lol. Thanks for any input.
