I have numerous lung nodules. Colon resection done 7/2011. Cancer in mass and 2 lymph nodes. New scan shows numerous nodles in both lungs (very small), largest is a 7.0mm and too close to artery. My CEA is 5.6 and suv is 2. What do u think?

In brief: Suspicious

You still need to have a biopsy to confirm it is or is not metastatic disease.
Did you have a previous scan that showed no nodules? If so and they are new, highly suspicious. Hope this helps.
