My husband had his ultrasound today. The doc that did the ultrasound told us that the reason his rectal surgeon had requested this test following his colonoscopy Monday was because he felt a lump or thickening of the skin around the surgical location (removal of rectal tumor feb. 04). It seems our surgeon and this ultrasound doc have worked many cases together over the last 10-12 years. And just recently in the last two months they have had two patients (one five years and one seven years ago) that had the same type of surgery (transanal excision) my husband had and both have had the cancer return in the same location as their original tumors.
