I had a petscan and a couple of days before that I had a flushot in my left arm. I was going for my petct scan do to colon cancer that I had 6  years ago. The Pet was good the only thing they noticed was a lymph node that I had under my left arm had grown 1/8th of a centimeter from last year. Could it be from the flushot . I am seeing my oncologist next month. Some doctors said yes and some say no. What do you think?

It seems as if the theory is that it doesn't happen, but the reality is that it does happen - maybe rarely. People with rare reactions will always have a tougher time of it in modern medicine, which is based on averages.

Here is a case study from 2011:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3110855/
"False-Positive Hypermetabolic Lesions on Post-Treatment PET-CT after Influenza Vaccination"

But, that's not a big name journal, so it won't carry as much weight.
