Topic: Very generic question about tumor growth
I don't know if it's the genes that I inherited through my dad but I have been reading probably too much about CC and to no one's surprise I am quite frustrated.
One common thing I find is that the studies and average populations are sparse and most data seems to be statistically vague.
Since my dad will be getting a new scan in about 3 weeks I'm already obsessing about potential progression and growth. So far things have progressed reasonably slowly but he has deteriorated quite a bit and his last chemo hit him very hard. He has continued to have decent bloodwork and his only major symptoms are fatigue and mild stomach aches. As I've posted before, he has lung mets but his abdominal area was clean.
I am truly concerned that the next CT will show major progression and lots of bad stuff. Maybe this is just me being a pessimist and hoping that if things are stable or have little progression I will find some relief.
Anyway, my question is - in general - what kind of progression have you experienced CT from CT? I know it's a very generic question but I would rather hear from people directly than read another nameless/facelss study from a research center or university.
I really appreciate everyone's patience for my questions and warm insights and recommendations.
Thank you and best of luck to everyone.
