Thank you for the ongoing contributions to our case!
Our patient achieved a complete response following radiotherapy treatment alone (30Gy) and remained under haematology follow-up.
Unfortunately 5 years later he attends the haematology clinic earlier than scheduled as he has unintentionally lost 2kg over the past 4 months and more recently has noted an inguinal mass.
A repeat PET scan which shows non-bulky, stage 3 disease including 5cm splenomegaly.
- How would you manage our patient now? Any further investigations?
