Linmol1,

I am five years clean of HL myself now. I have some lung damage (eiher form the Bleomycin or from stomach gases), and there is a spot on one lung discovered by a recent CT ordered by my lung doctor, but he said it is not suspicious.  But I do have to get "follow up." 

The doctor added that "Most people don't get CTs. If they did, they would find out that they have miscellaneous spots in their lungs as well, virtually all harmless."

Congrats,

Max

That's great I wish I can feel the same way.

Today was my one year checkup since I finished my ABVD, and it appear that a node in the neck grow 2mm in size within the last 6 months. Also the CT finding thinks and I quote "this node morphologically has a benign appearance"  but how he he knew without biopsy. I remember CT finding before I got my diagnoses say that the node swollen was due to infection, and end been a cancer. Anyway my ONC say will wait for 3 months and then do another CT scan to see if it's grow and where we go from there.
