Hello doctor,

Can you interpret this for me? Recently diagnosed with mediastinal seminoma and completed 3 BEP chemotherapy before five months.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

There are some lymph node-like structures in the chest area which take up radiotracer, and it will help to study the complete series of images of your scan. A diagnosis of cancer always requires a biopsy. No treatment of cancer is justified without biopsy confirmation. Many conditions, including disease and infections and inflammations will take up the radiotracer as visualized in your scan. Even in cancer, the lymph node decrease in number and size is not predictable. If your recent CT scan shows persisting lymph nodes, then another biopsy might help. Please get a second reading of the biopsy slide done if needed.
