After a few rounds of Ipi / Nivo I was taken off treatment due to adverse side effects and moved to watch and wait as I had a partial response on the first follow up scans. And the docs think this is likely to continue.
About a year ago during a neck ultrasound for an enlarged lymph node that turned out OK, they found a thyroid nodule that was suspicious for thyroid cancer. I had FNA’s and a Thallium test that suggested it was benign but then it gre a bit so the plan was to remove. Due to the melanoma this was delayed until a few weeks ago when I had half my thyroid removed. Results today showed a benign nodule but containing both a 3mm and 1mm spit of melanoma. This was totally unexpected and I now have to wait til the 18th to see the oncology team after my next set of scans next week.
I was pretty confident about these scans before as the mass in my arm feels either stable or a little smaller, but not quite so sure now!!
