    alternative treatment?

    5
    My sister was diagnosed with vaginal cancer last December. She underwent radiation/chemo for 7 weeks and brachetherapy (sp?) (internal radiation inserted into her tumor). In June she had a PET scan and all signs said she was in remission. She began having awful pain and they recently did another PET scan and a biopsy only to find that the cancer is back. The doctors have said all they can do...

    I have two large lumps in my vagina. I found them about two years ago and didn't worry because I thought they were normal.

They're about the size if a Hershey's kiss and raised up about a quarter inch.About the time I found it (at the time there was only one) was a...

    Is this message board active?

    0
    I was just wondering if this message board is active? I think I might have to deal with a reaccurance of Vaginal Cancer after completing treatment in November of 2009. Has anyone on here had a reaccurance, and what was the treatment that was used? I have had many surgeries while trying to prevent VAIN turning into Cancer (fail) and I had external beam radiation. I might add that I stopped...
