My mom is having a liver biopsy

Options
Well after getting my mom's PET Scan results back last week and seeing that the mass that was in her neck was gone, they saw a small spot on her liver(about 2 cm). She is scheduled to have a liver biopsy on Monday. I am numb. I thought this part was over and I'm sure she did too. I thought we were just gonna continue to healing process (she has lyphedema and a lot of mucus from the radiaton). I'm really hoping the spot in nothing serious and we can rest easy again and continue getting her better.

    hoping it will be good
    Hi EricaA,

    I am with you in hoping it is nothing serious. The PET scans can detect good and bad with out differentiation.

    Best always,

    Matt
