Nov 2009 diagnosed with prostate cancer. Robotic surgery May 2010 and so far all is well. Bladder cancer diagnosed January 2010. Small tumor removed Feb 2010..Cystoscope every 4 months... so far so good.. Have a postive outlook and prognosis...until the past two or three months as I have developed hoarseness and sharp pain under my ribs. ( being treated for acid reflux so may be part of reason for vocal issues) EKG was fine..Went for chest xray last week and got the report that there is some abnormalities ( very light contrasts on xray) that the doc says "might" be scaring as tumors are usually whiter and more pronounced on the xrays? A cat scan is being ordered. More than a little concerned as I am an ex-smoker of 35 yrs ( quit 26 months ago before any cancer diagnosis) and hopng things are not taking off on me.. I am breathing fine and can do brisk walks and yard work without any respiratory stress at all. Anyone have any input?
