Brand new to the board, and cancer.  Found out Friday that I have a mass in my sigmoid colon.  Good news is CT scan confirmed that the cancer hasn't metastasized.  Had a consult with a surgeon yesterday who apparently is one of the best in the city.  She wants to do an MRI to confirm exact location.   Surgery expected 2-5 weeks after that.

That's it for now.  I am up today.

Bet you never even knew, and didn't want to, that there are forums for awful things like Cancer. 

It is definitely a club nobody wants to be a part of. 

Good nws that the Cancer has not spread.   Ask us anything you want, there is bound sure to be someone with just the right answer, and lots of insight, experiences, stories - some horror - and fun. Yeah, we can have fun, as well.

As Tru said, "welcome, sorry you are here."  There will be countless issues to deal with in the upcoming weeks.  One word of caution, however, is not to rely entriely on scans.  It seems like it is during surgery that the concrete discoveries and conclusions are made.  It looks like you have a while before surgery.  My strategy was to train for it as if it were an athletic competion.  Best of luck to you.

Good that it didn't spread. They'll remove it, probably some mop up chemo and you're as good as new. Best of luck.

You do  not give us a clue as to how old you are.  But I am sure you are much younger than me.  I beat it at age 77 and have been NED (no evedence of disease) for 11 years.  So you can too!!!  Good luck!
