  1. I'm 56 and was a longtime smoker that was screened every year for lung cancer (my mother died at 54 of adenocarcinoma) In 2018, a nodule was found on the right lungs lower lobe adjacent to the major fissure. At that time, it measured 8x5 mm and after a PET scan showed no uptake, I was told we'd watch and wait. In October 2019, another CT scan was done-now the nodule was 12x8. Because of its location, my pulmonologist sent me to see a thoracic surgeon-who removed my right lungs lower lobe. my lung collapsed a few days later and after three blood patches failed, he went back in and did a wedg
  2. Good morning. I am new to this group. I was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer last August 2018. Mets to brain, bone and adrenal gland. First line treatment was cisplatin, alimta and keytruda. Started maintenance in January so now on alimta and keytruda with someday every 3 months. Still processing all of this and trying to stay informed and educate myself. I feel great with no symptoms. After treatments I feel tired which leads to emotion, which is the only time I am reminded I have cancer. I remain optimistic however sometimes overwhelmed at how much information there is out there and how t
  3. Hello Everyone, My father in law is 74. Although he was very skinny but he was very healthy up on till October 2018. Four months ago he had a pneumonia and the doctors found out that he has non-small lung cancer / non malignant. There were no metasteses at that time and other organs, bones brain etc were clean. There were spots on right lower and middle lobes and also few spots on left lung. While he was recovering from the pneumonia he had a second pneumonia attack which made him too weak to even stand on his feet. Since he wasn't in the country it took him couple of months to impro
  4. Hello, I'm happy to find this forum, but sad I have to join it. Yes, I just got word that my chest CT of Feb 19, 2019, indicated lung cancer. After having annual & semi-annual chest CTs for several years, my pulmonologist decided two years ago that we should stop getting them. The "small" spot on right lung was unchanged & probably some scarring, radiologist & he thought. But because my husband & I are moving out of state the beginning of April, he ordered this current CT "to wrap things up," so to speak, not expecting any changes. Changes there were, however: the
  5. Hi all, I am writing because there is a lot of confusion in my family right now. My father is 80 years old and is a two time cancer survivor - in 2004, he was diagnosed with stage 2B colorectal cancer, he had the tumor removed and chose not to have chemo or radiation. In 2007, was diagnosed with stage 2B prostate cancer, they removed his prostate and did not have further treatment. He is very health, works out every day, active, social, eats healthy, non-smoker but unfortunately, his family is plagued with a history of cancer. This winter, he began coughing a lot and has wheezing when br
