Hi, I'm 3 months post treatment, I just had my first p e t , which did not see any cancer left, but the doctors want to do a biopsy to make sure. I am fine with all of that, butI now have swollen lymph nodes in the lungs. They were going to do a needle biopsy but now want to do an open biopsy because it is not safe to do it with needle.They think it might be sarcoidosis. I asked if this was nessasary and the doctor sais yes to make sure. Cancer has not been mentioned, I had asked if any cancer showed up anywhere on pet and she said no. I am not sure what to do. I would like to have biopsy on anal area and port removed, but not sure about the lung. Any opinions?
