My husband (39 Years Old) was discovered by chance a 3 cm nodule in the lung (right upper lobe, with spicules) very suspicious according to the doctors.
From there, the earth collapses, fighting wank. With full pre-operative test. Antibiotics for a week ( doc says it’s procedure )
CT and MRI extension balance = negative. Bronchial fibroscopy with biopsy bronchial spurs + washing = normal. (Even if the nodule could not be reached). Pet scan ( 17 days after the scanner that had discovered the nodule) extremely surprising because the nodule has decreased by half! It only fixes very little (1.4 Suvmax) and no suspicious spots elsewhere.
This whole thing should reassure me, but I still wonder.
It is possible that a nodule that was originally considered malignant would actually be only benign and halved in less than 3 weeks????
Is the petscan fixation threshold really insignificant? (1,4)
All this medical language is sometimes hard to understand.
