Update on nodule that lit up in pet scan


Recommended Posts

My surgeon just called. He said that he wants to do a biopsy of the nodule in my left lung that lit up on this last PET scan. If it is not cancerous he will proceed to biopsy the lymph nodes that were infected. If they show active cancer he is not going to do surgery. I would be treated with chemo and radiation. If they show inflamation then he will do the lobectomy.

Yes that really is fantastic. He will let me know as soon as he can schedule it. I will let you know the results. Thank you for your concern and I pray that God Blesses you and your wife.

That sounds totally on par with everything I have heard. I assume they said that if the nodule is negative, but lymphs are positive, you will do chemo and then be evaluated for s urgery after chemo, right?

That was the path with my mom at IIIA. Chemo--surgery--radiation.
