I haven't been here for awhile. I am now taking strong radiation treatments for nearly golf ball size lumps on side of face and chest near armpit.. I just have 2 more treatments left. I am eating pain pills from the lump on side of face. Real sore. My second Dr. recommended that I not take radiation, but a cancer nurse encouraged me to go see a radiation Dr. I am now between a rock and hard place. I don't know whether I should ever go back to the second Dr. or not.??? I can't take anymore chemo because of serious heart disease.
I don't know what to do if the lumps don't go away. I was sort of waiting for this Ipilimumab chemo but FDA has put approval off another 3 months.
I really don't think they are in too much of a hurry to find a cure. Big Business
Has anyone ever had big lumps treated with radiation? Thanks
