I am 30 months out from treatment for Squamos cell at base of my tongue. My recent P.E.T scan should that i have "subtle metabolism in the region of the right hilium measures up to 3.3 suv anterior to the right pulmonary artery. Metabolism in a low paratracheal lymph node measures up to 3.0 suv non-specific. Metabolism in the lateral segment of the left hepatic lobe posteriorly appears focal and measures up to 3.5 SUV.
In layman terms, what is this saying ??? I have inlarged Lymph Nondes on my lungs ??
I had this PET over 2 months ago and a couple of days after the test, the nurse called me and said everything was OK. Then I go to the Doctor today and he lays this report on me that was over 2 months old. So, It appears that the Doc never read the report and only the nurse took it upon herslef to evaluate the results. Am I close ??
This report also states that I have right heart failure/right heart disease and possible Aortic valve disease

Can't answer these questions but can direct you to a website I've found where a oncologist who specializes in lung cancer answers questions. Please go to onctalk.com and ask the doctor.
Good luck Stephen.
