This isn't for me, but I hoped to tap into the collective knowledge of the folks on here. A guy I have conversed with on a UK cancer forum since my diagnosis (really good guy) has had SCC of the BOT and had rads and chemo. He finished his treatments in March and has just had his first post treatment PET.
The scan suggested that the rads have worked on his original site, but there is another site nearby they are going to have to biopsy as it is showing up on the PET but they think it might be radiation scarring. He also has some nodules show up in his lung.
I seem to remember others have had similar (ultimately) false positives in their first PET post treatment? Can anyone offer any words of experience or comfort for him? I very much hope so, as it's obviously a worrying time for him.
