[Serious] Please cross your fingers for a good outcome?

In summer of 2010 the lower right lobe of my lung was removed to get a small cancer spot. There were good follow-up blood tests and CT scans every 3 months for 2 years, then I went to a 6 month interval between tests.

This time, AFP & CEA tumor markers were mildly elevated. I had PET and CT scans Wednesday. A lymph node in the center of my chest "lit up." Next step is seeing a cardiothoracic surgeon for evaluation.

I have no doubt it's cancer again. Even my oncologist admitted, when asked directly, that the other two possibilities (infection or inflammation) aren't expected.

I'd be grateful if you folks would put out positive thoughts in your various ways hoping this will be manageable.

You have got my prayers and best wishes. Cancer sure can be stubborn. Anne had it re-occur before also, but it has now been in remission for quite awhile. I pray that you have the same conclusion!

Thank you so much! It's a lovely surprise to see your post in this part of DSLR.

The appointment is at 4:30 Pacific Time, so there's just over 7 more hours to wait.

After the surgeon and oncologist talk, the surgeon expects to do a mediastinoscopy: »www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency···3864.htm and take samples for biopsy. I should get a call Monday or Tuesday arranging for it to be done next week or, at latest, Monday/Tuesday of the following week.

IT'S AN OUTPATIENT PROCEDURE provided there are no complications. When they know biopsy results, a decision will be made about whether to treat with radiation or chemo.

If this surgeon had done the original surgery, he would've done the mediastinoscopy first and maybe this wouldn't have happened. The cancer cells escaped from the tumor in my lung before the lobe was removed. But that's irrelevant now.

I'm relieved not to be facing another major surgery and appreciate everyone's support greatly.

Didn't they check lymph nodes during your surgery? 7 were checked with mine which sounds similar to the mediastinoscopy and I have had two PET scans within the last 6 months all negative. It sounds like he is suspecting you had previous cancer even past the lobectomy at the time and should have received chemo/radiation post op?
