Dr are the opinion that I should go for radiotherapy. on PET scan size of mass is 2.3x2.6 cm (7.1.2010) but at Triphasic Scan it is 4x3.7 cm (8.2.2010), rest of parameters are normal, except CA19.9 that is increased from 99 (Dec'09)to 125.6 units (Jan'10). No jaundice, Non-diabetic, no loss of apatite, Non smoker & vegetarian.
