Glad to hear that he thinks things are stable and that waiting for another look is the next step. Makes sense given that the characterization is even inconclusive, and the size remaining stable further reduces the urgency. In my case, they knew immediately that it was cancer and they were proven right with pathology. So I think you can take some comfort in that (they certainly know when it is!) and waiting might not seem so bad.
Just one thing you might ask him. He's right about
measuring the size and making comparisons - very tricky with the imaging data, kinda fuzzy & bumpy sometimes, I play with my own MRI data all the time. Given that the first ultrasound didn't even detect the tumor, should he do another one right now to use in comparing against in Nov when you have the second one done? Or, is he comfortable comparing the size of the tumor based on CT data (now) vs US data (Nov)? I'd be a little worried that the change in imaging methods alone can make things look a bit different.
