Don M Posted February 2, 2005 Share Posted February 2, 2005 Hi all: I had an upper left lobectomy a year ago with no adjuvant treatment. My ct scan results today established that I have a new nodule in my left lung. Last November it was thought to be a new nodule or scar tissue. Last Friday it was determined that it is a nodule that grew from 9 mm last November to 12 mm at the present. There has been no change in my mediastinal area or other suspicious sites. I am going to have a PET scan to see if it is cancer or not. I had a benign nodule in the bottom of my left lung when I had surgery a year ago. It was removed and found to be benign. Of course, I hope the new one is benign. But if it isn’t, the worse that would probably happen is that I would have the rest of my left lung removed because the cancer would probably be still local. Even if the PET scan is negative, I will have to closely monitor this nodule for the next couple of years. I was hoping that I would just get clear scans as the years went by, but not so. I will just have to get used to living with the uncertainty. Please pray for me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
