Haematologist reporting on lung CT scan


Are haematologists able to report on a chest CT scan and confirm you have nothing to be concerned about in terms of lung cancer?

I’ve previously had blood cancer, thus I visit my haematologist if issues arise.

Hi cancersurvivour welcome to Grace. Congrats on the "previous" aspect of your blood cancer. A haematologist is just the person to keep an eye on you with CT scans. Your CT will have a report sent with it to the haematologist. It is part of their specific training to interpret the scan, report (from the radiologist), and you clinically.
Sounds like you're in good hands.

Best of luck,

I joined GRACE as a caregiver for my husband who had a Pancoast tumor, NSCLC stage III in 2009. He had curative chemo/rads then it was believed he had a recurrence in the spine/oligometastasis that was radiated. He's 10 years out from treatment.
