Hi Everyone. I've been away for a while. Last Dec . My husband had his liver resection. Latest pet scan as of last week said "one new lesion in right inferior hepatic lobe that has further increased on size and shows more uptake consistent with focal progression of disease. SUV previously 4.0 now 7.6 and measures 4.7x2.2 Cm. " I don't understand that if it is a new lesion, then how was it seen on previous scan Can anyone explain? Also a "developing left upper lobe nodule. report says it did not show abnormal uptake but the appearance on ct is worrisome for additional,spread of disease." His oncologist said we'd biopsy the liver lesion then determine if ablation or surgery is possible again. I would appreciate any thoughts or experiences on prognosis and having 2 liver resections. oncologist also said no chemo now and he is not concerned about the lung nodule. thank you!
