my dr read the pet scan wrong!

The dr that read my pet scan only read the preliminary report and told me it came back negative... My primary care dr called me today and read the actual report and told me it came back positive and the results were correct. he did tell me there was no growth from jan 10 - feb 10. so he thinks theyre benign... I dont think they would grow that much in a month any. Now I am really scared its cancer...given my history. Work wont let me hae time off to have a biopsy or removal either.

Stuff work, your health comes first and just think what a relief it will be to know for sure that you are ok. If the worse news comes sooner you get treated better chance of cure. Some company you work for!!!!

Re: my dr read the pet scan wrong!

5 years at the company and thats how much they appreciate me. I took the time off for the biopsy next week regardless of what work told me. I dont know if it will hurt the next day though...I never had a biopsy of the lung. My mother told me to be prepared to get a lawyer if my specialists suggests surgery after next week.... I dont know.
