Some background: presented to Pulmonologist with severe pain in front chest to shoulder blade and into left arm. Had ct scan June 9 results were large lobulated mass almost completely filling left apex consistent with pancoast tumor. Next step Pet scan July 9 results were left apex mass with posterior pleural and left superior mediastinal fat invasion. Max SUV of 10.6. Notes indicate this a pleural based malignancy.There is an azygos node showing max suv of 2.6. Had ct guided needle biopsy on July 30 and awaiting results. The wait is the worst.
Thanks of reading and any comments would be appreciated.
