jd2b2001 Posted December 30, 2020 Share Posted December 30, 2020 I am 47 years old and underwent a CT scan of my abdomen for some stomach issues. A 1.4 cm nodule in the right lower lobe of my lung was found. A CT with contrast read this to be spiculated. Pulmonologist said he wasn't convinced it was spiculated and ordered a PET/CT scan. The impression was solitary small low-attenuation nonspiculated pulmonary nodule of the right lower lobe, displaying mild hypermetabolic radiotracer uptake (average SUV measurement of 2.1), accompanied by two low-attenuation lymph nodes along the subcarinal and right hilar nodal chains, displaying moderate hypermetabolic radiotracer uptake (reaching average SUV measurement of 5.7 and 6.5, respectively), collectively reflecting the "flip-flop fungus" sign, highly suggestive of chronic histoplasmosis. I thought this is great news! I just received my results from the histoplasmosis testing and they were negative. Now I am sitting and waiting for the doctor to get back to me with the next step. If it is cancer I just want to start planning for what the future holds and the unknown is eating me up inside. Any advise?
