Re: Pet Scans
Jun 1, 2008
I've had a pet scan for the same reason what they call a nodule. Mine (lit up) on the pet scan so they thought it might be cancer. I then had a needle biopsy done. All was OK.
I believe most nodule are just scars from previous lung infections such as pnemonia. They would rather do everything they can before doing evasive procedures such as biopsys.
Hope this helps.
