Hello, I’m looking for a little help/information, my dad has 3 tumors on his groin both sides, and 2 under his diaphragm near his spleen he was told when he was diagnosed it was stage 1 B cell he had at the time 2 tumors under the diaphragm and one small one at one side of his groin, does this mean his stage has now changed?
Hi this explains staging in very general terms
Best to ask that question when he next sees his consultant, from what you describe it sounds like stage 1 or 2 but I am no experts so do ensure the question is asked. Its not unusual for fnhl patients to have the disease develop but still stay on watch and wait it is what happens sometimes, just like when it stabilises and stops growing/spreading for a time. Did they give your dad a grade, the link explains that too.
Hi Jan, I was just about to post the same link but John get there first.
Yes, his team are the ones to ask.
