Topic: Good news - CC stable (at moment) without treatment
My husband was diagnosed over a year ago with CC through a routine scan - he has one large tumour 8cm and a few other satellites in the other lobe. As you can imagine it was a great shock to all the family as he was symptom free. He has been regularly tested every three months since then, the consultant told us to hang fire for treatment as he was still feeling well, so we had a year of travelling and trying to fit everything in with holidays friends etc. At his last scan the consultant said that over the year there has been only a few mms growth in the satellites - the large tumour was virtually the same. I understand that CC is very unpredictable, but we are hoping his is slow growing so that he can keep well without treatment for as long as possible. Just wanted to share this news to try to give hope to anyone recently diagnosed. Statistics take only an average view of things - we were told six to 12 months was all we could reasonably expect and we have had a year of expecting the worst. Although we are still cautious, we are now hoping for the best. Sometimes it is better to see what is happening before jumping into treatment straight away.
Our fingers are crossed for more good scans in the future.
