I had a eyes to thighs Pet/Ct scan in Feburary this year which said that there was no definite evidence of FDG-avid malignancy from skull base to midthigh however it said there were several nodular and ground glass opacities throughout both lung fields, not FDG-avid and recommended follow-up with CT thorax in two months to ensure resolution. I had same in June and September. September scan impression said stable bilateral groundglass opacities and semi-solid nodule in left lower lobe (1.6 X 1.4 cm.) and should consider biopsy or 6 month follow up. I met with thoracic surgeon who says he wants to take nodule out. He said biopsy is hard to get a good result. This Surgeon did fellowship at Mayo Clinic for one year but has only been at our hospital a few weeks. Anyone have any recommendations. Do you think he is being rather aggresive in the treatment as I am scared to death to have it done. He does it laposcropically but should he not be able to get to it then I have to be opened up. Do you think another Pet/ct scan is order before attempting surgery? Any input would be appreciated.
