I am just wondering if anyone has had a similar finding. I had stage 1B cervical cancer treated with radiation, chemo, and internal radiation. Following treatments that ended last May, I had two clear pap smears and last Friday went in for a PET/CT scan. Unfortunately I wasn't able to talk to my oncologist today, but his staff, for better or for worse, let me know the results had come in, and then said they were unable to interpret them. This made me really nervous and eventually I talked to my family doctor who also got a copy of the results. Apparently there were three findings, two of which were good and the third which said there were some swollen lymph nodes, I believe he said near the tailbone.
I will call the oncologist tomorrow, but I did a little looking around the web (also for better or for worse) and it seems likely either they would have to be taken out, or tested with a biopsy. Anyone have any experience with this?
