  • Aortacaval node size decrease

    Hi all. 9 weeks ago I posted that my 3 year post tc scan revealed a 13mm aortacaval node , suspicious of late recurrence. I had a follow up ct scan yesterday, 9 weeks later and the node size decreased to10mm. I feel relieved but does a decrease of 3mm mean that it’s definitely not cancerous.?

    I would imagine that’d be the case. Cancer doesn’t shrink on its own I believed.
    3/29/17 Diagnosed 100% Embryonal 4/10/17 Left I/O CT scan shows a few suspicious lymph (biggest 1.9 cm) 5/8/17 - 7/3/17 3xBEP 7/20/17 CT Scan Clear, AFP has uptick to 19 8/16/17 AFP Drops in half to 10, ALL CLEAR! 3/20/19 All clears up to here!

        Nothing is definite with cancer, but shrinkage is a positive sign, I think this needs more frequent scans going forward to keep an eye on it.JMHO.
