The CUP Diaries - Dealing with Cancer of Unknown Primary

It’s a bit of a shock when you are diagnosed with cancer – and even more of a shock when the doctors tell you they have no idea where it is!
This is the phenomenon known as Cancer of Unknown Primary – or CUP - as it is commonly known. A secondary cancer is detected in the body – which means that metastasis has occurred – the original cancer has spread to other parts of the body. However, when they look for the original cancer – it can’t be found!

This is one survivor's story of being diagnosed with something she'd never heard of, something that has quite a poor prognosis, due to the fact that it isn't picked up until after the primary cancer has spread elsewhere.

The author takes you through a personal account of the original symptoms, the barrage of tests, diagnosis and the details of treatment she went through to emerge happy and healthy again.
