Diagnosed with colon cancer Nov. 2016. Excellent response to chemo, radiation with no signs of tumor remaining. Opted to have colon resection, which was a good choice since cancer cells were found in pathology, as well as one lymph node. Went for a follow up colonoscopy this week (all clear, looked excellent) and CT scan. CT scan showed 6mm spot on lung. Oncologist said she wants to repeat scan in 2 months to see if any change. It was not there on last years scan. (There is a 4mm spot that has been there since beginning, with no change. Said can be from previous infection.) So this may be something from a newer infection in last year as well, or it could be spreading of the cancer. Very stressed about the possibility of the cancer having spread. Not sure what the chances are of it being nothing vs. something. I should have asked but was in shock. Any experience with this would be appreciated.
