      d two surgeries for adenois cystic carcinoma, or a cancerous tumor under my tongue. I finished radiation treatments 30 treatments, 5 days a week for 6 weeks. I never had to undergo chemo. However, had a 6 month Pet Scan in early April and the doctor said it 'showed nothing significant', whatever that means. I have never heard of 'dead cancer cells' showing up in a PET scan but my advice to you would be take charge and ASK the doctor to explain why, when, how often does this occur, and how can it be proved that these are 'dead'. I learned long ago that only by asking questions and getting satisfactory answers will your mind be put at ease. Never feel afraid of asking questiolns...............never. Good luck and peace!
