Met with my doctor this afternoon to get my CT scans results and the news was not good.  Several liver spots that were absent from last 3 scans are back, I have a new tumor on my adrenal gland (on top of right kidney).  With that news I'm now schedule to get a Pet Scan this Thursday along w/ an MRI, The MRI is for some bad headaches I've been having.  All my blood work is in good order, marker around 4. For the first time in a long time my oncologist looked a little uneasy.  For now, the flu seems to be going away and I'm feeling more energetic.  Time will tell.  Peace

Grace. I've been at this for too long. I was DX w/ MCRC Dec 2004. I've been in and out of remission 4x. Last April is when almost all my cancer came out of nowhere and tipped my world on it's ear. Today, I have cancer primrarly in my live, peritoneum.  I'm 52 yrs old and in decent heaht despite cancer...

Sorry to hear this. Hopefully treatment will zap it right out of you. Good luck with the MRI.

...in such situation. I have had a similar disappointment on Monday. Life goes on and we have to do the next thing. PET scan for me too.

Let's make every day a good one and hope for the best.

I have a CT scan every two months and each time it shows a growth on my liver.  Then ultra sound scheduled with a biopsy finds nothing. Next I do a Pet scan and nothing lights up. My CEA is less than one but mu oncologist knows something is there only because CT scans say so. Could be anything else but he thinks cancer just doesn't know why he thinks so. In the past eleven years ( three bouts with cancer) I had CT scans so often I light up a room in the dark. The truth is for me the CT scan has been wrong 60% of the time. Both in not finding a cancer and identifying cancer I didn't have. Now every two month it's like ground hog day. Repeat the tests ; repeat the results; wait another two months. My point these tests and the doctors are not definitive. Best of luck Lou
