Hello collective hearts,
While looking for something completely unrelated to cancer it was found on a CT that i have a new 3 cm ( not mm) spot on my lung where previously there were only two tiny 2 and 3 mm ones. Two months ago this was not there.
Will be getting PET to determine metabolic activity.
Normally very chipper onc looked concerned and said could be 1) metastasis 2) new cancer or 3) just an infection. Never prayed for a lung infection before, but here I am.
My question is: I've been told the CA 125 has been a good cancer indicator for me and onc's puzzled because it's still very low. Did anyone have a recurrence without their 125 rising?
I'm one year out of successful chemo and debulking surgery and on olaparib and avastin for almost a year now.
