Not your call: There are some ringers for metastatic disease. Don't self-diagnose based on something you saw on the internet. If you are having a scan done, I understand how difficult this time must be and you have my sympathy. But the report by the radiologist should be available by the time you get this.

Agree with Dr. Friedlander. Just so you are aware - we can't see the scan you are referring to. You can do uploads on Health Tap Prime and Concierge - but not on HealthTap Basic.
