This really freaked me out because I'm thinking if the test was negative they would just told her that over the phone or my mail. But since doc is asking for an appointment to go over ct scan resutls does this mean there is something wrong?
Any one have a CT Scan before? How do doctors normally go over ct scan results? In person or over the phone if there is nothing wrong?
I'm so worried and losing sleep over this.
Many people do have ct scan. Well if it is urgent, the doctor would tell her right away. Sometimes the doctor just wants a review. You could ask the receptionist about the reason.
I would not lose sleep over that. It is probably a review - like Ok, you may have this cyst in anothe area, or you need to have some diet. Sometimes, it may not be about that particular cancer. Just something they see and want to discuss. This does not mean cancer.
Honestly, if it is really bad, he would tell you right away.
