I was wondering if anyone has had a PET scan to detect recurrance?
Tg level after thyrogen injection is a 5.5
Ultrasound in neck showed small mass in neck, had biopsy done and that dr didn't think it was anything.
I think the PET scan doesn't include the CT scan w/it. My dr didn't say anything about that.
It also sounds from some of the posts that even a PET may not show something. Is it that the cancer is so small that tests can't detect it?
It is frustrating to have some things come back negative but my dr said w/my age, 42 and that when I had surgery 2 years ago it was in my lymph nodes in my neck and w/my Tg after thyrogen was 5.5, made him concerned, but he wanted to monitor it.
