Went to see my ENT yesterday, he gave me the results of my scan and scoped me with one of those new scopes with the camera. He explained that it was a sugar scan and how the whole thing worked. He put it on a number system for me saying that when the results come back as a 10 or 11, that is probably cancer. When it comes back as 1 or 2 it is not cancer. He said I came in at a 5 in the right tonsil area.
So he wants to do more biopsies of the right base of tongue and right oropharnyx. He also said after he scoped me that he didn't see anything unusual and that he thought there was less than 10% chance anything was there. At least he said that and it helped my mental state a lot.
Does anyone think I should be worried? Or was the scan done too early? I pray everything will be fine. Last rad = April 9th, scan May 27th.
I have the biopsies on Monday. So the waiting game begins again.
Best to all,
