Topic: Swollen Lymph Nodes

Is there a possibility that a swollen lymph code could be the cancer coming back?  My husband Dave has a dime size cyst just about his rib cage. Doc is checking it out Friday.  I think it may be a node.  Does anyone have knowledge on this?

I lost my incredible husband Dave to CC February 13th, 2011 after a 2 year battle.  He leaves behind a legacy that will never be forgotten..I will miss you forever.

Ladybug,

I don't have an answer but am sending good wishes and hugs to the both of you. 

You will be in my thoughts and prayers that you will receive a good answer.

Hugs,
Pam

My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Re: Swollen Lymph Nodes

When looking back at the postings I recall  the appearances of bumps, nodes, etc.  Many times it turned out to be not related to the cancer.  Many times radiation was used in case it had spread to the bones.  Ladybug, I don't have the answer either but, I am holding on to good thoughts and I am crossing my fingers for Friday.
Hugs

Thank you all so very much!  It is going to be a long night tonight, waiting for tomorrow...and then another long day!  I will post to you all tomorrow night, as we should have our results tomorrow afternoon.  Scan is at 12:00, and Doc visits at 1:30.  Please everyone about that time he is getting his scan...say a pray for Dave  & I, that whatever we are faced with, we will have the strength to make it through.  You will never know how much your posts mean to me. 

Sending thank you hugs to you all!!
