Very Confused!


3 years ago I finished treatment for anal cancer.

Last week in my oncology appointment following my routine 6 month scan I was told there was an "occurance" just behind my cervix which required an urgent MRI scan.  Oncologist examined me and said everything felt and looked normal.

When I received my appointment letter it said MRI Rectum.  I called the hospital and a nurse checked my details.  My oncologist has asked for a pelvic and gynaecological MRI, which will include vagina and anus.

Still confused at to what they are actually looking for? Just wanted to see if any other members had this MRI scan?

The majority of us have all had MRI’s during our cancer journeys. I think it’s pretty typical to do an MRI if any occurrences what so ever are picked up in scans. Apparently your prior scan showed an area of concern, so the MRI is to follow up and make sure all is still well. Waiting is the worst. Update us after your MRI.
