JerseyRose Posted November 9, 2020 Share Posted November 9, 2020 I had my first PET scan on August 17th and was supposed to get a bronchoscopy a week or two later. Then the interventional pulmonologist who was going to do this procedure had some kind of medical problem and was out of work for over a month. He referred me to another doctor in Philadelphia to get the bronchoscopy done there. I live in Southern NJ and couldn’t get transportation out of state so we had to make alternate plans to have my biopsy done locally. After waiting patiently for a few months, I was finally referred to a radiologist in my local area to get a CT guided needle lung biopsy instead of the bronchoscopy. I’m now scheduled to have this procedure done next Tuesday. Can anybody tell me if one procedure is better than the other for confirming lung cancer diagnosis? I have two small nodules in my right lung but only one lit up on my PET scan. There was no sign of cancer anywhere else in my body and my oncologist told me that I caught it early where surgery would be an option for me after the biopsy.
