When I had my yearly check up earlier this month, the Dr. found a mass on my right lung (they seem to be at the back of the lung and in the top half). I had a CT scan and it was recommended that I have a PET scan and a biopsy. I went Monday 20 June for the PET scan and then the CT scan guided needle biopsy. I got the results yesterday - there were two places on the lung and they got a biopsy of one of the places. It showed that it was the Uterine cancer that I was diagnosed with in 2006. I actually had Uterine/Ovarian cancer and had six chemo treatments (Taxol and carboplaxin(?) and then 5 weeks of radiation treatments and 3 vaginal radiation treatments. Now here it is almost 5 years later and the Uterine has returned in my lung. The internist said that the rest of the torso seemed to be clear with no cancer seen on the PET scan. I go see my Oncologist/Gynecologist on Tuesday to see what he says about a plan of treatment. My CA125 numbers have been under 10 since before the third chemo treatment. I am scared.
