Can anyone tell me how good the PET scansarre at finding indolent lymphomas? I am convinced I have something going on in my left leg. Nothing showed on a PET in March or a Ct in April. I am wondering about the skill of the radiologist as a factor. My onc said PET is not always good at finding small indolent lymphomas, especially in bones or joints. In my first PET, the brighter spot was only 2.8 and it took a biopsy to confirm NHFL stage IV with bone marrow involvement. Any ideas about how best to tell if I have a lymphoma in my left thigh bone? I do also have infrequent night sweats but only from the shoulders up. I feel generally pretty good but with days when I can hardly function. Left leg pain is constant.
