I'm new here: second diagnosis of BCC personally. My mother has metastatic BC, about to start chemotherapy.
I'm very lucky that she has a good chance to kick the latest outbreak. I'm also grateful that next week I'll be having mine removed. But I must admit, I'm selfishly a little concerned about my cancer metastasizing (even thought thats really rare). Mum's was a grade 1 cancer and it spread a year after chemotherapy was deemed successful.
Is the chance of cancers spreading genetic, do you know?
Should I insist on getting a scan on my lymph nodes just in case? I'm about 80% positive I've found two more BCC since my diagnosis and I'm worried.
I should also mention I have pretty severe anxiety, so I apologize for all the fear.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
