My Mother -In- law was diagnosed by Breast Cancer 5 years back she went through Six Kemo's at that time last year in October she was again diagnosed by mutation in lungs after six Kemo's now her latest PET Scan reports scan reports I think something is seriously wrong Please help me understand and give me some solution on what should I do or how should I take care or her Please I love her a lot please help me some hoe I know that all this means bad but do not want to accept it, below is the Impression of the Report..
IMPRESSION: This is a known case of CA left Breast along with the left axillary lymph node clearance. PET CT fails to demonstrate any metabolically active focal lesion in the operative bed to suggest recurrence/residual disease. However extensive bilateral pulmonary nodules, which are metabolically active, are observed with maximal affliction of the right upper lobe of lung. These are likely to be metastatic. The mediastinal lymph nodes do not exhibit any significant metabolic activity. The osseous lesions are metabolically active and represent metastases. Compared to other prior PET CT study dated 22nd January 2011, there appears to be considerable increase in the size of the mass lesions in the right upper lobe of the lung. There is a increase in the size and number of metabolically active pulmonary nodules bilaterally. There is an increase in metabolically active focal lesions in the bones as described above. This is suggestive of progression of the disease.
