Topic: Lymph node involvement

Hi all,

I posted in Introductions about my Dad's case - recurrence after resection and I'm wondering how to be sure that there is no lymph node involvement when there is recurrence?

I didn't see anything about lymph nodes in the latest CT scan report (Jan 2013) and the biopsy was just on one of the recurrent tumors.  Are there scans that are better than others in detecting lymph node involvement or are there blood test markers to look out for?

Thanks for your help!

Julie

Re: Lymph node involvement

Hi,
the CT scan will tell whether there are lymph nodes involvement or not.

God bless.
