I wrote a cancer health update post last Wednesday, letting you all know my Oncologist had found a lump on my neck & ordered a CT scan of my brain, neck and chest. The results came quickly thanks to a brand new scan location that has state of the art scanning and results within 24 hours. I called my doctor on Friday and the nurse read the results:
ALL SCANS NEGATIVE FOR CANCER. NO SIGN OF CANCER.
I am so thankful. I am so relieved. Honestly, I was bracing myself this time. I think it was because of how it took me off guard that my doctor felt something that I had no idea about. Usually I am pretty in tune with my body & any lumps and bumps it might have. I had no clue there was a swollen node in my neck. We still don’t know why it is swollen, but at least we know there is no evidence of growing disease. I was also bracing myself for the worst because of the location of the node. The neck is not a place you want cancer to come back in, as it places you in an automatic stage iv.
