PaulaWKY Posted January 24, 2006 Share Posted January 24, 2006 Hello Everyone, My mother was just diagnosed today with small cell lung cancer of the left lung. The doctor did scans of her brain, stomach and bones and so far these scans have come up with no cancer. They did notice during a CT Scan a spot on her right kidney. They have a PET Scan scheduled for tomorrow to check the spot on her kidney. My mom is 53 years old and has 3 children.. 2 grandchildren so far but is expecting 2 more in the coming year. My mom smoked from the time she was a teenager until she was diagnosed. Her smoking did the opposite to me I've never touched one and never will. If anyone has information or a good website that provides information on this I would appreciate it. This has been a shocking and upsetting time for our family. I thought for a long time something like this could happen but never really thought it would happen to my mom. I'm still trying to process this and get as much information as I can to educate myself and my family. Good luck to all of you..
