I have out of treatment since January 2008 and have been following up at Moffitt Cancer Center since then. In March I had an extra sore place on my tongue and my ENT biopsied it but found no cancer cells.
Wednesday of last week, I had my first petscan since I finished treatments and the only place that showed some activity was the same place that was biopsied in March.
They decided to redo the petscan in 4 months (November) to see if there are any changes but in the meantime seem to think since they already biopsied that area and only found scar tissue, inflammation and radiation damage that there needs no other follow-up until the Petscan in November.
Have any of you had any experience with this type of situation? I just don't want to sit and worry for 4 months waiting for the result of the next petscan. I have gotten great feedback from this site in the past so I am hoping someone will respond to me.
