  • Post chemo question

    I'm a little over 3 months out of chemo and had my check up for blood work a few weeks ago and everything is still all good. Have my first Ct scan at 6 months in February. I had some Teratoma in my pathology. My Ct scan when diagnosed in may had one slightly enlarged node at 1.4 Cm with elevated markers so I did 3 x BEP. Had post chemo scan 3 weeks after chemo and the lymph node decreased under 1 cm and everything else was clear.

    I know Teratoma could pop up a some point and I'm just praying it doesn't. I guess my question would be has anyone on here also had some Teratoma in testical and went through chemo and not had englared lymph nodes after?

    My doctors said with the slightly enlarged node and with Teratoma being slow growing their was a chance it didn't spread from the testicle. And the post chemo scan showed no enlarged nodes so I hope that is the case. I just have been thinking about it a lot lately. Like most of us do on surveillance..
