I had radiation to the chest area for 7 weeks for a tumor in the right upper lobe, as a result there is a lot of scar tissue left behind. My Oncologist states that scar tissue expands and contracts over time, which poses the question as to the accuracy of the ct-scan readings in the ability to detect any new tumors or metastasis that might be hiding behind this scar tissue? Has anyone here had the same concerns, or is there another form of testing other than ct-scans. Would appreciate any and all input.
