I was diagnosed with Stage IV Vaginal Cancer in 2013. I had surgery to remove the cancer in the vagina along with some of the surrounding lymph nodes.  After a PET scan, the doctors, labeled me Stage IV because of a node in my neck showing positive for cancer. I have not received chemo or radiation. I have been doing photodynamic light therapy treatment in China for the last two years. I only have one lymph node, left common iliac artery measuring 1.8 cm and SUV uptake of 9.7.  No other cancer is in my body.
I was wondering if CK treatment would be an option for the one remaining lymph node?

It might be a very good use for Ck in your case.
