My mum had a follow up appointment with the oncologist today and it wasn't good news. Her PET scan results from Thursday are not back yet but he explained a bit more about the ct findings. He said that there is a small area on the right side adjacent to her spine which he thinks could be a metastases from the lung cancer or perhaps a recurrence of the breast cancer my mum had 6 years ago. He also mentioned that the ct scan showed there was some thickening at the top of her adrenal glands. His opinion is that it is from the lung cancer and explained that while it is unusual it is not impossible for this to happen so soon after surgery. He said that there was a meeting last week and the surgeon was very surprised that this has come up as he considers that he completely removed the cancer. He also explained that the treatment for lung mets would be radiotherapy and chemo if my mum is fit enough and told us that breast cancer mets are more easily treated and generally have a better outcome. I asked about the gene mutations and she doesn't have any unfortunately. I felt he painted a very bleak picture.
