My MRI shows that NPC is back after 2 years from treatment. I have an appoint for PET on next Tuesday.

Any suggestions, comments and thought for the recurrence.

Hi Neo,

Sorry to hear of the recurrence.  I am 3 months out of NPC treatment and hope to learn from your experience. 

Was there anything that you can think of that may have contribute to the recurrence?

but it might be from the first treatment didn't fully remove or destory. I need to do PET scan to confirm and biopsy as suggested.

Hi Neo

Keeping you in pray that the MRI is just a false positive and that the PET will show clear.

Neo,

Have they did a biopsy as of yet....? Hopefully it's not a recurrence, but I would think that a biopsy is the only certainity...

Prayers,

John

hi, neo.  just wanted to say i will be praying for you.  the others may be right, it may take a biopsy to confirm cancer.  be sure to look at your options before you act.  God bless.
