A subsequent biopsy of the lymph nodes showed almost all dead cells but the few alive indicated colon cancer. Following was a colonoscopy, a P.E.T. scan, a bone marrow test (which indicated 0.2% lymphoma). None of these tests showed any evidence of colon cancer. My oncologist ordered an additional lymph biopsy so they could gather cells to test for future use in determining chemo drugs. The second biopsy was more extensive, they removed 11 samples and all the cells were dead. I've had 3 months of chemo treatments for colon cancer. Has anyone had a misdiagnosed colon cancer based upon biopsy/lab tests? I was never sick at all until I started with my chemo, now I can't walk the dog, or leave the house due to unexpected and unannounced intestinal events.
