I started radiation 2 days ago

Luckily my cancer is a stage 1B.  I'm not a candidate for surgery or chemo so I'm doing 10 rounds of radiation.  I consider myself so lucky that it was found so early.  Actually they found it by accident during a CAT for something else.

how large was your lesion when accidentally discovered? mine is 1.5 cm but they are concerned as it is still apparently growing(when found was 1 cm)....would like to know how you are doing with your treatment..

My lesion was 1cm when they found it and was 3.5 cm three months later.  I had the radiation in June and in October the tumor had shrunk from the size of an egg to half that size.  I'm having another PET scan on Wednesday and I'll know the following week what shape its in at this point.  I'll let you know.  Thanks for asking.
