So the unfortunate news about Charlie with his Ultrasound today with FNA was while we will await the results by Thursday...the oncologist mentioned they were able to see the mass in his colon/large intestine area specifically. They were able to successfully take a sample with needle. While the full report is being written and will know more details tomorrow - oncologist says nothing else was really found with the ultrasound - nothing at least of significant concern or to address he said. However, the more unfortunate part was that due to the location of the mass, he said it nearly rules out the mass being either Benign or something related to IBD - instead very very likely its one of the three forms of cancer he mentioned to me during his check up earlier. So...I guess there goes all positive thinking and hopes I had of it being not just treatable, but also something he can overcome. Only thing I'm relieved somewhat now is that it seems we are going to find out what he has once and for all, but avoided all together the surgical biopsy. But quite the sad news that oncologist now too thinks its cancer as well...
