      Oncologist's office called back. He's out of the office until Thursday, and he'll look at the report then. However, the Nurse Practitioner said "the difference in the HU could be because one scan was done with contrast and one was without. I think it sounds like nothing to be concerned about. But, I'll put it on his desk, and have him look at it. For me personally, I'd get the MRI, but I expect the MRI to show a benign adenoma, not anything cancer'y, and definitely not a metastasis."

      So, thank you for the prayers and good thoughts....and if everyone can send me some "hurry up and approve the MRI" thoughts to my insurer, I'd be grateful!

      The oncologist finally reviewed the scan, and he basically said the same thing that the NP told me yesterday. "Nothing to be concerned about."

      Thanks for the prayers, and good wishes.

      Yay on the great scan results! A definitive answer would be nice, but so far, so good!

      When my scans show "unremarkable," I am happy! I do tend to read and "analyze" every word in my reports. Once, I went in with a whole list of questions after reading reports from my scans. The PA saw my list and told me the doctor HATES it when patients show up with all of those questions. What I was told is that some radiologists believe they aren't doing their job if they don't list a bunch of findings. I get sooo many scans (2 every 6 weeks). It is interesting to compare the work of the different radiologists. Some basically say, "same as last time" while others write an essay!

      Don't do TOO many scans because they can cause other cancers....Just a warning and a thought. Sometimes there is a diminishing returns from so many.
