Small trial suggests the scans might help, but experts aren't so sure
Please do keep us posted. I am thrilled to hear you are getting into a doc to have this checked. That news just made my day!!
I totally understand the thoughts of "what if..." and I know you are concerned or you wouldn't be here.

Caregiver to my husband who was diagnosed March 8th, 2010 with stage 4 tonsil cancer. Radiation and Chemo finished, and waiting to get follow up PET scan in late September.
