I had a pet scan done by my ex pulmonologist. Part of it reads "There is a small focal area of intermediate FDG uptake within the aortopulmonary window with peak SUV of 3.7. This co-registers to an area of soft tissue density measuring 9 x 11 mm, image 173, series 3. Small focal intermediate FDG uptake within the right infracarinal, medial hilar region is seen with peak SUV of 3.5 These are nonspecific and may be due to atypical vascular uptake or due to reactive lymph nodes". What does this mean and could it be the cause of the swelling I have above my left clavicle and swelling below and why I feel so sick.
