I just had my annual CT Scan and got the results. They did a complete chest, abdominal and pelvis scan. The results showed that I have scarring in my right lung (no evidence of mets)and what appears to be a granuloma on my speen. But no evidence of mets. It seems kind of bittersweet news - good news no mets, but what the heck does the other mean? The doctor says not to worry, but has scheduled me for a PET scan. I do occasionally find myself breathing a little harder to get a good breath (doctor says no concern) and have occasional discomfort where my spleen is located - also says "not to worry". Easier said than done - so off to the PET scan on Nov. 10.
It's seems like it is always something, as Gilda Radnor said.
Is anyone else familiar with lung scars or spleen granulomas? ]
Maybe a new doc is in order - who can provide better explanations.
Thanks all for the ears!
