Upcoming appointment

Hello I went to my GP over 2 lumps in my neck. I had an urgent referral to Vincent’s for an ultrasound which I had last Wednesday. The lady doing the ultrasound said my lumps looked like normal lymph node’s but that the radiologist would need to take a look etc. I received a text today with an appointment to see the ENT consultant on Friday. Now my concern is why am I being called in so quickly and also if nothing showed up in my scan would the results not just be sent back to my GP ? Should I be concerned.

Hi, I'm currently on hormone treatment for estrogen positive breast cancer, I am post surgery and radiotherapy treatment, I will be meeting with my Oncologist and surgeon as part of my follow-up care, I never seem to know what to ask, and I'm wondering if anyone could suggest what information I may need to ask about going forward? I know my follow on care will be an annual mammogram, but is there any other follow-up care I should be having that I may need to request? Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Hi. Has anyone else here had their chemo (adjuvant in my case) delayed in CUH? Or have you had the same experience? Mine has been put back from starting next week until July 25th. I am already 8 weeks post surgery. Thanks.

Blindness after cancer

Last reply: 12 April 2023 14:26
Good Afternoon. My partner was diagnosed with non Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2020. Since then she has recovered well from the treatment she was given but now she has lost her eyesight in both eyes since July 2022. Has anyone experienced this or know of anyone who has experienced this after cancer. Both her Neurologist and Opthalmic consultants do not know why she has lost her eyesight and so we so not know who to turn too next for help. They say she extraordinary case and that they have not seen this before. Can anyone help on this matter??? Any help or advice would be greatly accepted.
