Customer Question
I am 47 with a...
I am 47 with a history of Lymphoma in my 30's. I have been having almost daily headaches for several months accompanied by memory loss (which I have never dealt with before), severe fatigue, anxiety, feelings of depression (which I have never had before) and my most recent blood tests reflected an a slightly elevated WBC, CRP count of 29.2 and very elevated platelets. My PCP was concerned about a pituitary tumor and requested an MRI that was basically unremarkable. Due to my cancer history, my PCP requested a PET Scan of the brain. That was conducted on Monday and the results were as follows:Asymmetrical focal activity involving right upper frontal lobe with maximum SUV reaching 12.1. Maximum SUV on the contralateral side reaching 9.2. No clear cut mass on Non-IV contrast enhanced CT portion of the exam at this level. Elsewhere, there is expected physiological biodistribution of radio tracer within brain structure impressions.IMPRESSION: Asymmetrical focal activity involving right front lobe suspicious for neoplasm.In addition to this information, I have a swollen supraclavicular lymph node in exactly the same spot as a swollen node that led to my initial Lymphoma diagnosis.I have a consult scheduled with a neurosurgeon in December, but would like to get another impression and any other recommendations.Thank you!

Do you know what kind of lymphoma it is that you have?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I had Stage IVB Hodgkins Lymphoma and was treated with the Stanford V chemo protocol and rads. I was told that it was very likely that I would experience a secondary cancer at some point.
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

The PET scan could light up for many reasons and it doesn't always mean it's a cancer. It's odd that the MRI didn't show anything. Usually what your doctor will request is a higher definition MRI to see if there is anything at all. We trust an MRI report a little more than a PET scan. So in your case it may not be anything at all. But you have had headaches so there must be a reason for that.
