2 days ago I had my 3rd PET Scan. It showed the largest tumor in my lung had decreased to the point you can’t see it. The scan probably doesn’t declare all clear- according to my medical oncologist. I still need directly to see the radiologists’ report. My Onc prefers that I stay on Maintenence chemo. I want to take a long break.
Onc pointed out “good news” that the uptake of the Radioactive Sugar was much less than my previous scan in August. 2 vs 9.
What do you all know about UPTAKE as an indicator of active cancer?
