I try not to worry about things that I have no control over, but I’m freaking out a little bit. When I had my first CT scan, the day of my diagnosis back in July, I was told by the radiologist that I had two lesions on my liver. My doctor never mentioned them. The radiologist made it clear that it was she, my doctor, who did not think they were cancerous which might imply that maybe he did.
Now I just read in my MMMT Group that someone was told that she had a lesion on her liver and had to have either radiation or surgery. Do cancerous lesions show up different on a CAT scan? I assumed that to determine if it was cancer a biopsy had to be done.
I have an appointment with my radiologist on Wednesday to be tattooed before my first radiation treatment. I am also getting a CAT scan. Is it normal to have a CAT scan before radiation treatment? I'm beginning to think that maybe he has some concerns about those lesions.
