I had my 3 month doctor visit today. I am now 18 months post chemo, and almost 2 years post surgery for stage 1A UPSC.
I was treated with 6 cycles of taxol/carboplatin, but no radiation due to the fact I had received prior radiation for vaginal cancer in 2007.
My doctor saw a small spot on the apex of my vagina (wasn't there 3 months ago) which concerned her and took a biopsy of it. She also said she could see blood vessels below the surface of the skin.
Of course this scares me to death. She said she was probably being overly cautious to biopsy it, but wanted to act on it now instead of having me come back in a month to see if there were any changes.
I guess my question is, has anyone had this happen to them and had it not be a recurrence? Or have you had this happen and it turned out to be a recurrence?
And, do you know if radiated skin can form blood vessels near the surface?
She will have the results of the biopsy in about a week........it's going to be a long week.
