Hi PinkP


It sounds as if you have been through the cancer mill, no doubt.

You beat the breast cancer back.

And now the lc was caught at a very early stage and it sounds as if your treatment was appropriate.

I hate to say it, but dang! how lucky is that? They do say that there is luck of the Irish. Share it with us!

Hi PinkP,

I wanted to let you know that my history is about the same as yours. In 2001, I had an early stage breast cancer diagnosis that took me completely by surprise. Was treated successfully for that with surgery and radiation. In 2003, I was diagnosed with an early stage lung tumor, same side as the breast cancer, and had an upper left lobectomy. I also had chemo after my lobectomy. Mine were both separate cancers and Stage 1.

It happens, we have several members here who have had two cancers and seem to be rolling right along without any further problems. I think the thing we need to think about most is to stay vigilent because early detection is everything.

Good luck to you,

There are others here who had breast cancer and then turned around and got lung cancer.

I'm sorry you are going through this, I think those who have been through what you are going through will be of tremendous help to you for information, the rest of us can help through prayer and support.

Remember, here we never get tired of your venting, or questions or fears, that is why we are here, we go all through it together.

Hi Pink,

Thanks for the update on your history. Boy it sure sounds like you've had more than your fair share. But, it also sounds like you've got a great doctor who found this second primary and is got it taken right out of you. I know the surgery is difficult and takes a lot to heal, but it is the best chance for a complete cure.

I will be praying that this cancer nightmare never show its ugly face to you again.

Pink, I know it must be terribly hard for you to have to face cancer again after having it in the breast. I have no idea why this happens, and don't know if the reverse happens or not (meaning lung cancer first and then breast cancer). I'm glad your lung cancer was found early, and your prognosis should look good. We are here for each other, including venting, crying, laughing, and all other emotions imaginable, including worrying.

Prayers sent to you now
