Test Results Question
I received the PET SCAN results back and it explains the following:
There are tracer uptake in the spleen, adrenal glands and kidneys, pancreas and bowels. My previous 2 PET SCANS do not mention this. The oncologist said this is normal. This change occurred when a new lesion was found in my liver. Can someone help explain what this means. Is it the beginning of new lesions?
