Granuloma/sarcoidosis side effects of check point inhibitors
I got results of my lung biopsy. They took it from 3 different sites and it showed granuloma/sarcoidosis. It is a side effect of check point inhibitors like Keytruda.
They mentioned prednisone treatment. I didnt talk to oncologist yet.
I wonder if he will want me to stop treatment permanently or just to stop for little bit?
What are my other options if he will stop it?
I feel fine. People with more serious side effects take breaks and continue treatments. I need to keep going!
