lindseysmom Posted July 14, 2004 Share Posted July 14, 2004 Need your opinion. I asked my oncologist in April to do a CT scan, however he said it was not necessary. He said that a chest x-ray is all I needed, and that a CT is good for diagnosing but the x-ray is just as good to see if the disease is progressing. He told me he had written a paper on this. My thoughts are the x-ray may show if the tumor has changed, but may not show any new tumors. I have another appointment on July 19th and again he has only scheduled a x-ray. I would perfer a CT or does it seem that I am overreacting. I would love your thoughts on this. Thanks so much. Dee Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
