Hi Dr West ,
quick back ground
jan 2015 dignosed 3A squamous lung cancer
feb2015 left pnuemonectomy
april 2015 started cisplatin / vinoralbine
july 2015 first follow up chest / abdomin CT Scan
I am seeing my chemo oncologist shortly but i already have the report and I am finding myself going a little crazy .. basically most of the report is excellent clear chest , clear liver , kidneys etc etc .. just one thing is scaring me ..it says that a couple of lymph nodes in the hepatic region are swollen and one is 17mm big .. I have been researching as much as i can and it would appear that it is unusual for squamous lung cancer to go there but it can happen ? .. these lymph nodes were reported on in my Jan 2015 CT scan for some reason ( are these prominent lymph nodes or something ? ) in the Jan reprt it says they are sub centimeter .. I am terrfied that this is the beginning of the end , and so soon after chemo .. is there anything else that could make these lymph nodes so big ?
thankyou in advance
