    Problem with doctor

    Oh No

    The tumor extruding from area was gone after final radiation treatment. 3 weeks later the tumor appears. Medical oncologist never looked at my area during treatment so he did not know the tumor had disappeared. The radiation oncologist offered only the possibly that the tumor dropped from within to the outside area of infection. But it was a guess. I have selected a cancer treatment center to determine next stage of treatment - if there is a next stage.
