Question about Active Health & Beauty
This is from my PET scan report for lung cancer follow up. Non small cell lung cancer in 2010. They did a PET scan in 12/2016 and 4/2017.
You should really be asking a physician rather than a bunch of amateurs on a site like this. It tells me that they used a radioactive dye (scintigraphic evidence) and injected it into you before or during the scan to light up your lungs from the inside. The results show there is no active disease (tumor).
Hypermetabolism is the physiological state of increased rate of metabolic activity and is characterized by an abnormal increase in the body's basal metabolic rate.
The word neoplasm, meaning new growth in Greek, refers to any abnormal growth, whether malignant or benign. Neoplastic disease refers to both malignant and benign growths. All types of cancer fall into the category of malignant neoplastic diseases.
So it is good, your lungs are clear of cancer :>)
