Re: 11mm nodule on ct scan w/ contrast

Good question! Had a chest XRay that showed an 11 mm nodule & now they want me to also have the CT scan...wondering now that I have seen your question if the CT scan will just lead to a pet scan.
My advise to you though is not to be worried or concerned, as that won't do a thing for you... but aware, so that maybe you can make some seemingly small, yet significant changes in your day to day life.

The PET scan would show if any other cancer is in your body...that's what they are looking for.
