howeber his cea was as -
so we pushed for a ct scan which has revealed a 15mm lesion in liver .'so we believe this is a met but we r confussed as his dr said we are not sure what this is and want to now do a pet scan.
he is a smoker too
But from the ct a new liver lesion has been identified if 15 mm
can a ct not tell if it's a met?
Is this likely to be malignant lesion then ?
