First a bit of background, consultant has given me an initial staging of 1b2. He said the tumour looks about 1.5cm and is clearly differentiated adenosquamous. I had an EUA on 4/12 and will have an MRI on 15/12. I am provisionally scheduled for a radical hysterectomy on 6/1 (was offered 23/12 but asked for after Christmas due to lots of reasons).
I am now wondering whether the MRI will show lymph node involvement or whether this can only be done by removing nodes during radical hysterectomy? I’m also wondering whether lymph node involvement can be indicated by size of tumour?
I know cc is usually relatively slow growing but I’m wondering whether me asking to wait until after Christmas for the op may give the cancer time to move to lymph nodes. The fact the consultant agreed to let me wait makes me think he doesn’t think much will change, but now I’m worrying it might!
Any info/stories would be gratefully received!
