Follow up CT scans after lung cancer: How often is your followup?
I had lung surgery in December of 2021 which was 1A. No further treatment and since have been getting 6 month scans with the last being March 29th 2023. I have several ground glass nodules and one 4mm solid nodule that have been stable. I recently had a follow up appointment with the thoracic surgeon after the March CT scan. He said I don’t need another scan for a year because I’ve been stable for 2 years I guess taking into account the original Ct scan where the cancerous nodule was discovered. I thought the protocol was for continued 6 month scans to watch the other nodules? He put my order in for a 12 month scan but I am concerned that it should be 6 months. Any thoughts on this?
