I'm 37 and I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in July 2010. In November 2010 I completed 30 radiation treatments, 6 cisplatin chemo treatments and 5 Brachytherapy treatments. My first ct scan after treatments was in Dec. 2010 which looked great. In April 2011 my next scan showed a enlarged lymph node in my stomach area on the left side of my back bone. I had to redo the ct scan in June to make sure it wasn't a wrong reading but the lymph node was still enlarged and had gotten a little bigger. Monday I had a needle biopsy done to remove some fluid from the node to test for cancer and it just came back today that it is indeed cancer in my para aortic lymph node.
