To me yearly scans sound OK for you, but I'm not a doctor.

Yay, super good news. I was stage 1 and they moved me to yearly after 3 years. But they did say I could continue with 2 x a year if felt more comfortable doing that. I said no thanks. Once a year anxiety is quite enough.

Hi.  Congrats on NED.  I was 1.2 cm and stage 1a as well. I followed 6 months scans for 2 years and moved to annual.  Dr wants me to have annual for the rest of my life.

I had scans at 6 months the first year.  Then annual scans until year 4.  Now I have scans every two years.  I'm 7 years since surgery and there's never been a trace of anything concerning since 1/4 of my kidney was removed along with the tumor.

Hope you have continued good luck!

Never give up

Hello, I have been stage 4 for 2 years with no "new" areas to monitor. I'm allergic to the dye and find the whole process of getting a scan, seeing the doctor, and paying the bills (my deductable for scans has increased from 5% to 20%), all very stressful. Take a break for a year, then after your next scan reexamine your frequency. I have found that for me, living with cancer is the hard part. Reduce stress as much as possible, take care of yourself, it's ok to be freaked out by the whole thing.
