  1. K, Welcome here. Can COVID cause residual nodules? I wouldn't know but pulmonary nodules form for a lot of reasons and most are not cancer. Here is my go to resource for explaining why? After 17 years surviving lung cancer, my CT scans still show nodules. Mine appear, disappear, get larger and smaller, and I track them with a spread sheet to preserve my sanity. Here is information about your PET scan that might help you understand the process and how results are characterized. This is a good place to pose your questions after you get your PET results. I do hope your nodule is of

  2. Welcome. 3 cm is a pretty good sized little bugger. With the lymph nodes I would be pretty suspicious. So. Cancer or not, you are learning the first lesson of the cancer struggle, hurry up and wait. Keep us informed. Peace Tom

  3. Hello K. Sorry to hear of your mass. I have heard of women turning up with breast "lumps" following COVID, revealed at routine mammograms. I don't think they were cancerous, though. I didn't follow up with the findings. I also am surprised that the pulmonologist would say "Cancer" without a PET and/or a biopsy. I know from experience that the appearance of a nodule or mass can indicate the state of it, but only a biopsy can say for sure what it is.

    Arthritis?

    I dunno, Glenn, but I'm having terrible leg/hip pain this past week or so. I've been thinking it might be due to the Zometa I get once every three months with my infusion. It's for my one bone met (as well as my osteoporosis). I do have arthritis in my other hip, but the medication (meloxicam) that I take for that doesn't seem to help this. My oncology NP recommended I see my PCP for this. The PCP is ordering an MRI, which hopefully will show what's going on. Have you brought this up with your doctors? I'm not trying to be scary/ominous--we are at that age for plain ol' arthri

    lobectomy pain

    Hi, I had an upper left lobectomy last year in May. I had radiotherapy for six weeks after as I was too weak for chemo. I have had a sore left breast ever since the operation, but now 10 months later, I have both breasts that feel swollen and very sore. I’ve really had enough. Can anyone else help me. My doctor doesn’t know. I have just turned 70. Thank you.
