I finished chemotherapy therapy in September for stage !V colon cancer. I had my second CT scan last Monday and the Onc called today and left a message that I still have a tiny spot on my lung and two very small cysts on my liver. What alarmed me was the word "still". I had never heard before today that I had ANY spots or cysts found on my previous scan. Needless to say...I was a little freaked out. I had an appointment with the Onc in January and these spots were not mentioned. I called the Dr. today to get some more information and he said that the scan in Sept. did show those but nothing has changed since then and there is nothing that concerns him. I asked if there were any other tests I needed and he acted like there was nothing to worry about.
Has anyome ever had anything like this happen? Has an Onc. Dr. ever found spots on the lung or liver without being concerned about them? He said they were very small. Should I be concerned or just wait and have them rechecked? I have my next labs due April 19th. If they show the counts are within the normal range, should I feel satisfied I shouldn't "worry" about the spots?
Thanks for any comments you may have.
