Metabolic Activity on Pet/CT scan. Inflammation vs Malignancy
I wanted to find out if anyone 6 -8 months out from treatment received a NED ( No Evidence of Disease) on their follow up PET or CT scans? If not, how long until they got one? I'm on my 2nd scan post treatment for Hypopharynx HPV- stage 3 and both scans show an area of concern showing metabolic activity. The Medical team says it could just be inflammation. When I ask what's the norm, no one seems to know. If it wasn't my life on the line, I'd be cool with their answer but….. Does anybody have any insight? Thank you.
