BJ Posted May 11, 2004 Share Posted May 11, 2004 I had a spiral ct yesterday and got the results today. I havea 1.2 centermeter tumor on the adrenal gland above the left kidney. The good news is that this did not show up on the PET scan I had in April so my doc thinks it is a benign tumor. We will watch it to see if it grows. He says this is common among normal people, but because of the lung cancer history they have to watch it so I will get another spiral scan in a couple of months. He also wants to see me in a couple of weeks. Questions: 1. Is it normal to see the doctor every 4 weeks after getting your first clean PET scan? How long before you DON'T have to see him every 4 weeks? 2. Has anyone else had this adrenal tumor? 3. Another subject....When I sit for for 20 minutes or more, when I stand I have to take a few steps before my legs feel normal (does this make sense), is this from the chemo? I don't have this problem when I stand from a lying position. I forgot to mention this to the doctor at my last visit. Thanks, BJ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
