    SO my husband had his second CT Scan of that "node" that showed up on his last one and although it has not changed in size in 6 weeks they want to do a PET Scan. When will this end???

      The good news is it hasn't grown. The PET will tell what's going on. Waiting for results just plain sucks and I'm sorry you have another round to deal with. I've got fingers crossed all will be clear with the PET.

        Hey Sarah,
        Karen is right: if it hasn't changed size or shape, then there probably is nothing to worry about. The PET will bring into light whether there is any activity there. I'll be sending good vibes with the hopes that nothing lights up.
