What does the report suggest?
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 16 days ago.

It suggest adenocarcinoma of lungs which unfortunaely is a cancer.

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Can you make out what stage it's at and what is the reference to CK7 and CK20
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 16 days ago.

CK7 dye is specific for adenocarcinoma. There is no staging done, you will need further scan to know the spreads fo these.

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
PET scan was clear for all other parts
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 16 days ago.

That's reassuring, stage 1 and they might go for resection.

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Metastasis can happen anytime correct? Are there other tests or the PET scan would have been sufficient
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 16 days ago.

Yes it can.
