Urachal Cancer Survivor

Three weeks ago our son Mark, age 40, had his first CT scan since his en bloc resection. It showed what the radiologist, not checking the patient's gender, characterized as possibly a "cystic lesion arising from the ovary or possibly a cystic external iliac nodal metastasis." It measured 3.75 cm. Mark's oncologist has recommended a follow-up CT in two months and feels it is most likely a residual liquid-filled cyst from surgery, because it shows none of the usual characteristics of a cancerous mass. If tt shows growth in two months, then it is cancerous. I have asked that it be read again, giving observations based on Mark being a male. I would to hear comments regarding questions we should ask, possible outcomes, etc. i know, when Mark saw Dr. Seifker-Radtke at M.D. Anderson last year, she said any recurrence, particularly in the lymphatic system, meant Mark is Stage 4 and there are no further options. Thanks so much.
