: : Hi to All, I am new to the message board and just as new to loving a Gulf War Vet.
: : My Fiance served in the Gulfduring Desert Storm. He has several tumor like masses on his upper chest area. Has anyone else experienced the same problems? Both VA and personal physicians have discount his symptoms as nothing to worry about but I do worry about it.
: : We both have children from previous marriages and are planning on having at least one of our own...I want my husband-to-be to have a long healthy life with me and our children.
: i just got a biopsy today for what has been has been diagnosed as an unidentifiable lump in my leg, i'll let you know what they say. i also have had small bumps cut off from behind my ears, they told me that they could have been caused by the oil fires but that they weren't sure. they didn't seem to concerned with my leg until it began to hurt. has your husband had a biopsy?? hope all goes well for you....
My husband has several tumor-like masses -3 of them are on his chest, one on his back and one on his leg. When they first appeared they were just flat red areas that looked like eczema. Over the course of a year or so, they became raised and reddish- purple. They biopsied one and said it may be pseudolymphoma. They are going to biopsy another next week. Incidently, he also had a high blood sugar level when they did his routine blood work
