Well, another cancer. I had posted two years ago when I had transitional cell carcinoma of the upper right ureter and kidney. Surgery to remove and five months of chemo. This June, with a routine follow up, my oncologist found a problematic lymph node on my upper right chest. Pet Scan, MRI and biopsies. Squeamous cell carcinoma. Two tumors in the mediastinum and a met on the left humerus. Two months of chemo-they grew anyway. Now looking at radiation to keep the met in check and possibly shrink the turmors in the chest. I went through targeting yesterday. The question will be this: can they target the chest tumors with minmal side effects tot the lung etc. We will see. I know it is all palliataive so I need to weigh the cost/benefit.
I hope you are all well this this struggle/battle/challenge etc.
Not sure why I posted. Yeah I do. Need to bounce things off other than my family directly impacted..
