I have colon cancer and I post regularly on the discussion board over there. Got some new news yesterday regarding my wife. She has had right side pain for a couple of months but has been busy taking care of me and with work so she put off seeing a doctor. She got an ultrasound yesterday and the ultrasound guy said she had a 1 1/2 inch cyst on her liver but not to worry because it looks like a liquid filled cyst which is pretty common. She searched the internet and assures me that it's common. I was misdaignosed for about a year before the doctors found my colon cancer. I don't want her to waste precious time getting the run around. Does anyone have any advice on what she should ask her primary care doctor to test for? I have my regularly scheduled appointment with my oncologist on Tuesday and we are going to get us thoughts. Call me parinoid but I don't want to make the same mistake twice.
