I've recently had an orbital tumor removed with a high grade carcinoma.  No other tumor found. A PET scan 8mnth ago found no cancer in my body.  I'm gutted and struggling to tell my family.

Hi MsCate,

Welcome to this community. Although, it's not necessarily a club you would normally like to be involved in, it can be a very helpful club. I am sorry you have cancer.
What is making it so hard for you to tell your family? Is it because you don't want to hurt them? Family can be a very big part of coping well with a cancer diagnosis. They can be great sounding boards.

I wish you all the best.
