Primary cancerous lymph nodes were removed and now and though cancer free ... doctor says perhaps it might reoccur... can anybody help to direct me please?
Unfortunately, no tests can accurately predict whether or not your cancer will relapse. The best you can do is to be diligent about seeing your doctor for regular check-ups and testing so that if you have a recurrence, it can be found early and, therefore, treated more easily. Statistically, I should have already succumbed to my cancer. It is incurable and survival is an average of 11 years. I will soon be a 10-1/2 year survivor and I've had no relapses. So, each person is different and progresses differently with cancer. Keep your chin up and try not to worry until the doctors tell you that you have something to worry about. Enjoy your life to the fullest for as long as you can. We both know from experience that tomorrow is never promised to us.
Best wishes for continued good health! Congratulations for beating the Big C!!!
I have had thyroid cancer and some of my lymph nodes had it too. So I have been treated and now am diligent about keeping my appointments with my doctor and testing each year. My last blood test showed I was undetected for cancer. It been over 2 years for me.
