Finally starting treatment

Got results of CAT scan body is clear of cancer although seem to have some sort of ovarian cyst that needs to be seen to.


I have op on Tuesday…lumpectomy and all lymph nodes/some muscle removed. Surgeon says will try lumpectomy but might need masectomy. I asked him what cacer type and he said general non specific.


They planned on chemo first to try to shrink tumour…will I stilll need it if operation removes the cancerous tissue.

He said chemo usually starts 3 weeks after surgery

Hi Butterfly22

You might find it helpful to talk things over with one of our Helpliners.  The opening times tomorrow are 10-2 (weekdays 9-5).  The number is 0808 800 6000

Very best wishes

Hello butterfly. Glad the cat scan was clear. I had my io on the 10th jan results came back clear but beacause it was a grade 3 so aggressive and I am 36 my consultant said I will be having chemo anyway to make sure it has all gone and to try and prevent it coming back.
Good luck with your op.
