Chronic back pain in a 24-year-old girl turned out to be stage 4 cancer covering 75% of her lung.

Hannah was 24 years old when, while on vacation, she began to suffer from night sweats, weight loss, rashes, and a persistent cough. Despite requests from doctors to check her symptoms, she endured six months of suffering before being tested. Eventually, the experts found a stage four tumor showing “aggressive” characteristics.

In March 2022, Hannah went skiing when she developed a severe case of pneumonia along with other symptoms.

Worried about her health, Hannah went to the doctor four times a week, but was repeatedly fired.

Doctors initially suspected that her symptoms might be due to lung cancer, but when she was eventually x-rayed and scanned, they found an aggressive tumor diagnosed as diffuse large B-lymphoma.

Hanna, from Bristol, South West England, said: “The tumor was in my left lung – it took up three-quarters of my lung. We found out that I am in the fourth stage.

“You know it’s bad when they ask someone to sit with you while the doctors tell you the news.

“It was not a shock – I was relieved to finally know the diagnosis. It didn’t hit me until I started chemo.

“I was devastated that I couldn’t travel; we had so many plans. We wanted to buy a house, but financially we were screwed.

“Our life was ruined for a year.”

A 24-year-old girl was admitted to a clinical trial where she was given a non-invasive immunotherapy drug.

As an alternative to chemotherapy, the drug works by increasing the immune system’s attack on cancer cells.

Hanna noted, “At half scan, my tumor was reduced by 80 percent.”

Diffuse large B lymphoma, a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, primarily affects the lymphatic system.

This happens when the body begins to produce B-lymphocytes, ordinary white blood cells that are designed to protect against infections.

With timely treatment, about two-thirds of patients receive radical treatment, but even a slight delay can be fatal.

It is important to note that survival rates vary greatly for different types and stages of lymphoma.

When the condition is described as aggressive, it indicates that the cancer is rapidly growing and spreading rapidly.

These types of lymphoma, also known as high grade lymphoma or moderate grade lymphoma, tend to cause aggressive symptoms.

Luckily, in October 2022, Hana received her travel permit and is now completing her travel list.

She is scheduled to have a CT scan every 12 weeks to “check for signs of cancer.”
