Hi. A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is a diagnostic tool used to detect cancer and find out the cancer’s stage (a way of describing where the cancer is located, if or where it has spread, and whether it is affecting the functions of other organs in the body). 
Kindly follow the instructions given by your doctor...
