I was first diagnosed in 1997 with large cell, aggressive. Chemo involved CVP. Successful in slowing growth considerably. Wait and see regimen since then.
2 months ago a lump appeared on my neck after exposure to driveway pavement cleaner. It popped up overnight. Is golf ball sized now. Biopsy revealed no transformation to large cell aggressive.
My oncologist just set an appointment for 4 months from now. the lump continues to grow.
Questions I could use help with:
1. should I get a second opinion on whether I should be entering some kind of treatment?
2. I have increased exercise by swimming. Is the chlorine a risk?
3. I have gone on a brown rice, no dairy, no meat or poultry diet with lots of raw fruits and vegs, tofu and fish. Is this advisable?
