Sorry wrong question I asked. I need to know if a ct can detect a liver met ? My dad had colon cancer surgery on march. A ct has revealed a new liver lesion of 15mm
yes, it can :-/
they can see liver mets
and colon cancer does met to the liver :-/
I'm very worried n confussed cuz in ct repory radiologist said-
1 new liver lesion , 1 10 mm lymph node . Appearances keeping with disease progression . But at the meeting his dr said we are not sure what it is as image is cloudy and we will do a pet scan
Well, the CT scan - liver lesion and the lymph node is concerning with a met- which means 'disease progression'
but the best thing to do is a PET scan
I don't get y radiologist has stated this but onco saying not sure !
because if it is cancer, it will light up
the oncologist is being hopeful
just because you see something, doesn't mean it is so
which is why you need to do another test to confirm
you never want to assume something like worsening cancer without being totally sure
if the CT scan was clean, you would reassured that he was ok
but the CT scan shows something which needs further work up
But can't they get an idea from the ct. he saud we don't know if it's a tumor but I can see what else it poss can be.
I can't see this being anything benign . He has a history of simple liver cysts and thats it.
I will have to agree with you
It is concerning
oncologists try to be hopeful
I am sorry that I have to be honest about this :-/
Is this large 15 mm?
1.5cm is significant
He was on xeloda tabs , does this mean they didnt work ?
not if there is another lesion
He was on 4 the cycle. . If it worked then it would have killed the microscopic cells right. ?
1 lesion at present
are you still there
Still here sorryX so u said due to this lesion xeloda not worked right ?
Us there treatment for single liver met?
What about things like tumor ablation , surgery etc. ?
