Has anyone every received a false positive on their I scans. I believe I did 6 years ago. I was diagnosed with papillary cancer had scan which showed mets to lung - had treatment radiation and rescanned showed same mets to lung plus a possible met to abdominal area. Doctor thought it was in my kidney. Went to another doctor and he didn't believe it was a met. 6 months later I was scanned again and all the scans were negative except for that same abdominal area again. Doctor said to drink a lot of water and come back next day - I was scanned again and the spot was entirely gone - Doctor thinks that the Iodine got pooled up somewhere in the intestines.
