Justakid Posted November 4, 2004 Share Posted November 4, 2004 I was told at follow up after my treatment that chest xrays were only done like once a year. Seems to me that if I have a 30% chance of being cancer free in 3 1/2 years that x-ray or CT Scans should be done every 3 months (at least). Makes sense to catch it when it's small then large. Mine started off at 1.3 cm and lymph nodes were involved, what could have happened if the tumor was larger? Seems things could have been worse. My Doc said something about not being exposed to the radiation, etc and that studies showed more frequent screens didn;t help. Exposer to additional radiation.....I've already been fried! What's an xray or CT at this point?! What do you advise your Stage 3A patients? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
