opdivo/yervoy treatment

Posted by maria146 @maria146, Aug 29, 2018

Hi all, has anyone on opdivo gotten a PET scan showing progression and then gotten a biopsy and found it was inflammation? My dad just got a PET after 2 rounds of opdivo/yervoy and it showed significant progression but his oncologist thinks it may be inflammation so i wonder what the odds are…

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Cancer Support Group.

I know that inflammation can light up on a PET. Can you ask doc to give you an estimate of what percent assurance he/she believes that being the case?


He has no idea so he is sending my dad for a biopsy of the new spots..


Makes sense. I wish him luck.
