Thu, Aug 22 6:29pm · Anyone else have Anal cancer? in Colorectal Cancer

It’s stage 3 spleen and liver is clear -just got a cat scan for lungs Monday-he was diagnosed about a month ago -they have had a time discussing what to do because of the radiation would be very close to a lot of organs -they decided chemo then surgery and maybe radiation after surgery! It is 6 centimeters -he will get a port Monday and chemo starting Tuesday ! They explained it all to us the day before yesterday-Dr Rojan seems very knowledgeable! Thanks for asking and for the info !

Yes I have read about the virus but this is not the case -they said his cancer was probably caused from the radiation he had on his prostate in 1997 -thanks for the information though !

Yes we have had about 6 Dr’s they have been getting together -the problem is he had prostate cancer in 1997 so the very area has had radiation so they are going with chemo first then surgery after they see the area in surgery they may do radiation! I think I’m trusting the Dr ‘s more ! One especially Dr Rojan is great !

Thanks they have decided chemo first since radiation could be to close -then surgery-after they look at it in surgery they may know more if he can do radiation afterwards -The dr also said his cancer was probably caused by the radiation from when he had prostate that was in 1997 but had no trouble then !

The problem is he had radiation for prostate cancer in 1997 and also seed implants -now radiation is to close to the same place so they will do chemo then possibly surgery! I’m wanting to know if this is going in the right direction but I don’t think their is other options !
