Following an episode of haemoptysis I had a CT with contrast that showed no significant abnormalities ( 2 lower lobe lymph nodes there since 2013 on previous scan)
I met with the consultant this week for the first time and persuaded them to follow up with a bronchoscopy as I believe this is protocol but they did not offer it initially.
Firstly, can anyone offer insight into how often a lung tumour may be missed on a CT and also, if bronchoscopy is clear, is there anything else that can be done or should those 2 be enough to rule out a lung cancer?
As mentioned in a post relating to a Pancoast tumour , I have severe pain in the back of my shoulder which hurts at night especially. I have not had a bone scan or CTPET because I have no diagnosis.
I am unsure what I should push for to be sure the pain is not metastases from a tumour they can't find
I've had bloods and a spine x-ray which I am waiting for result from
