Secondary Growth

I was diagnosed with penile cancer in February this year ans underwent surgery to remove it and include glands resurfacing. I also had biopsy on lymph nodes and was delighted when I was told all fringe areas were clear and the biopsy showed it had not spread. I have just gone back for a final check up and was shocked to be told it looks like I have a secondary growth but need a biopsy to confirm it. Talk about knocking the wind right out of you!  Now can’t think of what is going to happen next. 

  • Hi  and welcome to the Online Community. I'm so sorry to read your final check-up has revealed you now need another biopsy. It does knock you for six when you think you're at the finishing line and you get a setback.

    Hopefully someone from this group will be along to answer soon. Come back and tell the group when you hear further news.

    Sending all the best, B xx
