Secondary squamous cell carcinoma in lymph nodes in my pelvis.

Secondary squamous cell carcinoma in lymph nodes in my pelvis.

I was diagnosed on Thursday, I had never heard of squamous cells.

It's looking like if they can't find the primary source of cancer my odds are not good at all.

I'm in pain because I have a mass in my pelvis wrapped around the main blood vessel to my leg which has caused a DVT.

I am shocked.

Hi Jacquiwilson,

 

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis.

How are you?

Is investigation in to the DVT how the cancer was discovered?

What is the treatment plan for you?

Yes it was an ultrasound scan on my leg that discovered a mass.
A colonoscopy is next to try to find the primary source of cancer.
I'm in pain, asking for more pain relief tomorrow.

Hi,

Yes, if you are in pain definitely ask for some pain relief.

Good luck with the colonoscopy. When is that scheduled for?
