      I don't know the answer. Hopefully, your colon cancer will "behave" while you address your squamous cell situation under control. What has your medical team said?

      My PCP is a Colon Cancer. Survivor... So she's on it I'm sure.... The one on my eye is brand new... She's just learning of it. My eye was ok when we met a couple weeks ago.

      Oh gosh BeckyTice, sorry to hear this. I had no idea you could get cancer on your eye. Looks like unfortunately cancer has all the bases covered when it comes to the human body. I have had basal cell carcinoma removed both from my nose and my arm. Comforting to know you have a good PCP helping you. Sending wheelbarrows of support and wishing you better days ahead and a successful outcome for both your arm and eye. Please keep us posted lady.

      Do you have an oncologist you trust? I would think that scans every 6-12 months would be in order for you due to your recurrence.

      I am 4 years out from my diagnosis of Stage IV rectal cancer with a met in my lung and 3 years out from last treatment. My oncologist sees me quarterly and does full labs (CBC, blood chemistry, magnesium level to check my kidney function, and CEA) - I have full body scans every six months.

      I'm not sure what schedule I'll be on after 5 years since rectal cancer can recur in the 5-7 year time frame more often than for colon cancer.

      But it is prudent to be followed for 5 years after a recurrence.

      Another squamous cell popped up on my other arm... and one on my eye.... bummer.....

      NO... I don't have an oncologist I can trust yet.... but I did find a PCP who is a colon cancer survivor. She'll know who to send me too. I trusted my PCP back in Maryland and that worked out good.

      @BeckyTice, my PCP discovered my cancer and was there for me every step early on. I just sent her a thank you card for 6 years more than i would have had were it not for her. It sounds like you have found someone equally as good!
