Unfortunately, today I got the horrible news that my father has lymphoma. We learned this from a PET scan he had last week. The past 2 months he's had numerous tests including a fine needle biopsy that detected no cancer. Even the oncologist said, before we got the results, that it is highly unlikely that what my father has is cancer. For a good two weeks, we had been so happy, thinking he was healthy and fine. However, the PET scan detected cancer in his neck area, between his lungs, in his abdomen, and near his jaw. He has yet to have his first appointment so we don't know if it is hodgkins or non-hodgkins, but we suspect it is the latter since my dad is 62. He so far has had no symptoms and feels fine. He had a mass on his neck removed last month but even then the doctors could not figure out if it was cancer. Ever since then, he feels absolutely fine. It's hard to believe my dad is sick and if he did not have the tumor on his neck none of us would've assumed there was anything wrong. I'm only 19 and the fact that there is a possibility of losing him is almost too painful to think about. For those of you who dealt with lymphoma or have loved ones with lymphoma, how did it respond to treatment and how are you or your loved one doing now?
