Scan showed uptake in lymph nodes?

My grandmother had her second round of radiation (Hurtle cell), and this time her scan showed uptake in the lymph nodes in the neck (up around the ear area). The doctor said for now they're going to watch the area with regular CT scans and see what happens.

Does that mean the cancer may be spreading?

Hi there!

Yes, it could mean that the cancer is spreading, though this would need to be followed-up with further testing for confirmation.

Take  care!
