My dad had his first pet scan this week 8 weeks post treatment... We met with oncologist at mayo and he said still a spot in the side of the last tumor, a new small one on the other side of the tongue and a new one in the left lung...... What?! How can this be? He just went through horrible brutal treatment and now there is more and it spread!? How can this be? He doesn't think the lungs is cancer he thinks its an infection or inflammation of aspired saliva , so wants to do a lung biopsy?! He did an oral test with touch and camara and everything felt really soft not hard like cancer... Now he want to order more biopsies, however, looks like that is done! He doesn't want anymore poking, cutting or poison in his body.. the good news is the oncologist thinks could be a false positive.... Has anyone else experienced this....? My mind and emotions are in a whirlwind! Dad doesn't want to go through with any biopsies.
