I met the ENT oncologist today in consulation to surgically remove the lymph node in my neck. (The needle biopsy came back suspicious for cancer). My medical oncologist says this is atypical of ovca since my ca-125 is 14.1 (two weeks ago), and two scans showed clean abdominal area.
This dr. today said that it's possible that a second cancer has developed in my neck. He said it wouldn't be early stages since it's in a lymph node. However, I have had no symptoms for any type of neck or throat cancer such as difficulty swallowing.
I'm just really scared and confused.
I suppose it would be strange for ovca, but since when is this disease predictable? I was diagnosed last year with stage 3c (clear cell). I do have a nine month complete remission.
Hopefully I will have the node removed next week. I will have a ct of my neck first.
Thanks Ladies. Hope all of you have a great weekend!
