Has anyone had a biopsy of what was believed to be scar tissue after treatment? If so, did it really turn out to be scar tissue?

I've had 2 biopsies of scar tissue.  One was done when it lit up on a PET scan done only 2 months after treatment ended.  The other one was done after a PET scan showed a different area lighting up a little more than it had before.  The second biopsy was a year after treatment ended.  And it really was scar tissue both times.

Thank you for the reassurance Janet. I am awaiting the results from my biopsy.

Good luck with the biopsy. Much better safe than sorry.

Sincerely,

Sandy

Yes, and yes, scar tissue.
