My dr thinks my cancer might be back. Going to send me for an ultrasound. Will that show the cancer? I've always had ct's in the past.

recurrent and metastatic disease is common problem with malignancies.
When matrix metalloproteinase develops it produces small e-cadherin inducing spread of tumor. Depending on the type of lesion one looks for lung, liver, bone and other areas.. The most effective study is the PET/CAT that will demonstrate most sites of spread.for potential therapy.
