catlady91 Posted February 7, 2021 Share Posted February 7, 2021 I'm getting over the shock of my mum's cancer recurrence but trying to figure it out. My mum's CT scan in November showed that she was clear but this recent PET scan showed cancerous activity and there was something there although fairly small. Can infection and inflammation make tumours appear larger? My mum also had an infection in her chest and they don't know if it could make the tumour appear bigger. I don't know if immunotherapy could cause this either. I'm not looking for false hope but I'm trying to understand how the CT scan was clear in November but now, three months later there's cancer. Even the doctor thought that my mum's scan would be clear. The doctor spoke about doing a CT scan as well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
