    New Lymph node mapping


    This is important progress because cancer cells can hide in the lymph nodes for all cancers and many nodes are removed in an effort to be better safe than sorry. If enough nodes are not removed, those that carry microscopic cells, it can cause cancer to return. I hope it wont be long before this is used for all solid tumor node mapping. If your currently having treatment take this to your Onc. to discuss.

      Thank you! This is really cool, I have Thyroid cancer that has already shown up in a lymph node in my chest. This kind of thing is so interesting to see. Tracy
