    odds of cancer in lymph nodes


    I'm just wondering if anyone has heard of someone being in Stage1B1 cervical cancer and finding cancer in the lymph nodes this early? I won't be going into surgery until Friday and won't get the results until a week later, but from what people have read or from your own experiences, have you girls hear anything like that happening in an early stage?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi rockstar, I think I can answer this question. By definition, any Stage 1 cancer has not spread. If it is in the lymph nodes, it would no longer been thought of as a stage 1B.

    I think they are looking into it very thoroughly, which is great. This will help you to know and be positive it hasn't gone any further.

    Fingers and toes crossed for you.
