Apologies if this is an inappropriate thread but I’m terrified and desperate for some understanding of my situation. My Dermatologist has just rang to tell me that the skin nodule he cut out last week which he expected to be a basal cell (skin cancer) carcinoma is actually an Adenocarcinoma. He said the biopsy showed the margins were clear but that he is concerned it might be symptomatic of some other internal cancer. He gave me the number of an Oncologist to ring but it looks like I won’t get to see him for 8 days. Given the skin was cut out of my upper chest would I be right to assume the Adenocarcinoma could be from Lung cancer ? I’m not a smoker and don’t have any cough? Or would it be right to assume it could have come from any area.Thank you for any opinions or suggestions on where I might further read up on my situation. Apologies again given that I have not been diagnosed with Lung cancer.
