In 2006 my husband was diagnosed with head and neck cancer. He is very stubborn. He was advised to undergo radiation and chemo. He took 5 radiation treatments and 1 chemo treatment. Then he announced (against doctor's advice) that he was finished with treatment. They told him it would probably return. While on vacation last week, he noticed an enlarged area on the right side of his abdomen. Since we have returned, I have started nagging him to make an appointment with the doctor. He is procrastinating. I am worried to death. Could this be an enlarged organ? I am wondering if there is a "most likely" area for returning cancer. He had a PET scan at the beginning of this which did not show a primary area. If anyone can give me some info or send me to a website that may help me either to quit worrying or nag harder, I would really appreciate it.
