Ok. Well my dad had cc surgery in march .he was stage 3 with no spread. Recent ct scan in april was clear . However cea rose as-
may - 3
june - 4
august - 8
so a ct scan was done 2 weeks ago which showed a 15 mm lesion in liver ?
So could this be a liver met then plus with a cea of 8?
They have ordered a pet scan why is
Is a cea of 8 regarded high ?
He has a history of liver cysts but this is not liekly
to be a new cyst that has occurred right ?
Could it be a hemiginoma?
The onco exact words were ... We are not sure as it looks cloudy so need to do a pet . What can this cloudy be. ?
but on the report the radiologist said 1 new lesion .... Appearances keeping with disease progression .It seems the radiologist is sure right ?
If they are suspecting a liver met then would the onco say im
not sure ?
Ok but would a ct give a good idea of it being a met?also what can this mean ... It is cloudy ?
What can they mean by the terms it's cloudy?
I think that too . But how come the radiologist was sure to
put such comment like appearancea keeping with disease progression ?
Are the radiologists usually right ? Also once this met got rid off could this b the end of it?
