Re: CT scan report and PARA-AORTIC Lymph Nodes!

My DH has some nodes and nodules that have remained stable. My understanding is that they are benign reactive nodes but are not cancerous nodes. Just my 2 cents. Like everyone has been saying, even if it is stage4,it is still treatable.

Re: opinion on lung nodule which got increased from 3mm to 6mm after 3.5 years

I wanted to chime in too. Last CT scan, his report indicated several nodes and nodules that previous reports did not show. Onc says they were there but they were never reported (which kind of irks me). So, I got scared and went to his last appointment. Onc says they have been there since diagnosis a...

Re: Scared I have Stage IV Colon Cancer

In addition to the above, I have been told lung nodules are quite common. You're probably fine.

Re: Mental status changes

I did a search and found that I posted the same thing 2 years ago, when he was diagnosed.

He was totally normal tonight. Very strange. It remains a mystery.

Mental status changes

Does anyone have experience with mental status changes? At diagnosis DH was acting very strange, paranoid and not making sense. That leveled off. He is now 1-1/2 years since chemo and he is very forgetful and not making sense again. Its almost like a dementia or something. Liver was clear on CT. No ...

Re: All Lung Nodule Experiences

My DH's recent scan says "focal opacity along the left lower lobe measuring 7 mm which can be related to localized atelectasis, although an underlying nodule is not excluded, and 2 along the right lower lobe measuring 2 to 3 mm which may be due to small foci of atelectasis or nodularity." ...

Lung nodule and mesenteric nodes

I haven't posted in a while because there haven't been any changes. So sorry to hear about Tom. Hubby and I were just told he has a lung nodule but that it has been there since the beginning and hasn't changed so not to worry. No one ever mentioned this to us. We were also told the same thing about ...
