In answer to your question about whether or not they scan my entire body, the answer is NO. The scans I have had done were an abdominal MRI and ultrasound which includes the kidney, liver, spleen, pancreas, gallbladder and adrenal gland. When my cancer was discovered a CT scan was done of my lungs.
I will definitely talk with my nephrologist about the possibility of having total body scans. After what has happened with your dad, I totally agree that it is a good idea to have that done. Thank you for making me aware.
I keep your dad in my thoughts and wish him improved health.
Best of health to you also.
