I was hoping for some insight on a PETscan I recently had. Since I've been having ongoing bowel obstruction symptoms and a SLOW rising ca125 my surgeon wanted me to have a PET/CT. The CT scan was clear but the PETscan showed one hotspot on my colon. The oncologist said it would unusual to have only ONE hotspot on a PETscan in cases of a reoccurence. My CA125 actually went down from a 14 to a 10 and the catscan was clear. He cannot confirm or deny a reoccurence and wants me to have a colonoscopy. Has anyone heard of a similar finding. I'm hoping the hotspot is nothing more than a polyp. Also, is brain a mestastic site for ovarian. I've been suffering from headaches and very paranoid!
