I got a question. It may sound dumb but it may clear up a lot of things for a lot of us. I know when we get CAT scans they are checking for any uptake that may be present in the lymph nodes. The question is will it show any activity in other organs of the body as well. I am refering to cancers such as pancreatic, lung,prostate colon,liver,stomach, etc.etc. The tumors in the organs are usually hard and have their own feeder system. As stated before in another post this makes them harder to treat. Lymphoma feeds right from our blood supply and probably rather quickly at that. If the CAT scan can detect these so called organ cancers maybe we are one step ahead of things. Early detection I have always heard is the key to defect this crap.
I know when I get my results,depending who is doing the reading there is often mention of unremarkable on these organs. Sometimes,depending on who is reading there is no mention of it. John
