My recent PET scan showed enlargement of both paratracheal and hilar nodes in my right lung. Last Dec. I had my lower right lobe removed. Onc. ordered biopsy of hilar node. At the hospital Radiologist Dr. called Onc. and said they usually biopsied paratracheal node rather than hilar node. Onc. agreed so that was what was biopsied. Biopsy came back as no abnormal cell activity in paratracheal node. I don't see the onc. until July 29 and wonder what should happen now. Will they now have to biopsy the hilar node?
