creekgirlsc Posted January 22, 2009 Share Posted January 22, 2009 Hello All.......A year ago I had surgery (after having the rad/chemo) to remove URL & had clean scans for awhile. Then a CT scan showed lymph node enlargement in left mediasterium. I had a bronchoscopy done on 12-12-08 & among other things part of the microscopic comment included the phrase "cellular cannibalism is also noted. The cell block emphsizes signet ring features." I saw my onc at a later date & asked him about it & he says he's never heard the phrase. Now I am wondering if that means that cancerous cells are eating up noncancerous cells. Kinda scary sounding to me....anyone know about this? Any help much appreciated. Creekgirl Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
