All this time I was under the impression that I have "ANAL cancer" plain and simple....but my clinical reports from MDA read "squamash cell carcinoma of the rectum" being staged and treated as Anal cancer. Upon surfing the Internet I discover that this is very real but VERY rare! Anyone else heard of it?
Well, whatever they call it, I have been blessed (?) with the chemo/radiation treatment and a few uncomfortable side effects. As it has been said, arose is a rose by any name........ And the treatment seems to be working! Tumor down from tennis ball to the size of the end of my finger and could be scar tissue!!!!! Yeah!!
Maybe I wasn't hearing well at my initial consultation? LOL! Sure good to be home...
