I had the results of my mid chemo scan and there was NED which is fantastic news, however the consultant said there was a nodule ( 6mm ) on my diaphragm that they were sure wasn't cancerous but that they would keep an eye on. I had to go to A& E last night as I lost a small amount of blood, turns out I have a polyp that will need to be surgically removed and sent off for an analysis, what next? Also, whilst there the doctor was looking at my CT scan and turned round and said "oh,I see you have an unexplained small mass on your diaphragm and a cyst on your kidney " I nearly fell off the bed! Don't like the" small mass " bit and had NEVER been told about any cyst. Spent a sleepless night imaging all sorts and convincing myself it had come back. Rang my CNS this morning who told me that they weren't concerned about the nodule but would keep an eye on it and that although the kidney cyst was mentioned on the CT results it wasn't felt significant to be brought up at the MDT meeting. She is going to try and get me in with the gynaecologist sometime this week re the polyp. All this has really unnerved me and I feel like I felt when I was first diagnosed, silly though that may sound. All these lumps popping up all over the place can't be good can it? I was trying to be so positive as well.....I know that lots of people may be walking about with cysts, nodules and polyps inside them and there's nothing sinister and they are oblivious because they don't have CT scans butt its different for us isn't it? I wonder if too much information is a bad thing. Should I be worried? Can cancer come back in the middle or whilst your on chemo? How do you ever stop worrying every time you get a symptom or niggle?
