Well, the doctors here at MUSC in Charleston, SC said my mother's biopsy was positive for recurrence. this after biopsy in same area showed negative for cancer in March. OMG!! The area is now along the eye muscle so they say they need to remove her entire left eye. We're so upset that we didn't go to MD Anderson in the beginning. now we're quickly trying to get a 2nd opinion there at Andrson before her surgery. I'm not even sure the pathologists here know what they're doing.Maybe they do, but mom is so stressed because first one was negative. This is at MUSC in Charleston, SC
This recurrence happened only a few months after her treatment in August for nasal and sinus cancer. She upset that after 6 weeks of traveling 2 hours for radiation we're now back to this. Isn't that a really short time for recurrence?
