Hmm CT came back not so good

I had a double mastectomy about a year and a half ago. I go in for CT scans twice a year my family history is really high risk and the Breast cancer was my second type of cancer. The last CT came back not so good yesterday, my Dr is doing a PET scan next.We live a few hours from Tulsa where there is a Cancer Centers of America.Has anyone had any interaction with them? It's early no matter what so we are not feeling out but what does anyone think

Re: Hmm CT came back not so good

I have had a very bad experience with Cancer Centers..specifically in Philadelphia. Overall, I would never recommend them to anyone, but recommend a major hospital with a reknowned Oncology department. Sloane Kettering n NY/ NJ is an excellent choice, the Mayo Clinic has great outcomes, even some of your local University hospitals have great oncology departments.
You need to evaluate the outcomes, not the program....Cancer Center is all about one thing....a more robust, individualized program may meet your needs better.
