I apologize if this post is too detailed, I don't want to violate any forum rules. Just looking for what to expect next. Had a pet scan done 3 weeks ago and scan revealed an 8cm x 6cm left apex tumor. Suspicion is high for malignant pancoast.. The tumor is encroaching on the sub clavian artery, a few upper vertebrae, and esophagus. The report indicates the mass almost completely fills the left apex. The highest SUV value was 10.03 and also showed at least 1 hylar node lit up but not sure of the SUV value on that. Biopsy is scheduled for 07/30. If anyone familiar can give me an idea what the next steps may be I would be much thankful.
Peace and best regards to all.
