I was diagnosed with HD IIA NS on 3/03, underwent 8 treatments of ABVD and 23 days of radiation and have been cancer free since 12/03.
Until a CT scan on 1/9/06 indicated 2 new masses in mediastinum area. A PET scan from 1/23/06 revealed activity in 6 nodes. I am undergoing a biospy tomorrow to determine whether the nodes are involved or benign.
Has anyone experienced a false positive PET scan with recurrent HD?
I am contemplating a clinical trial (Cytoxan and Rituxan) versus undergoing a full bone marrow transplant. Has anyone else been faced with this decision?
Any experiences would be appreciated.
