Eileen4 Posted July 1, 2006 Share Posted July 1, 2006 Hi! This is my first post... About 6 weeks ago, a CT scan showed a mass in my upper left lobe. A bronchoscopy 2 weeks later was negative for malignancy but the pulminologist thought it might be a sampling error as the tumor was "very deep" and arranged a PET scan. The mass glowed! I am having surgery on July 10th to remove the upper left lobe. What's confusing to me is that the surgery was arranged 3 weeks before the PET scan was done as the surgeon who looked at my CT scan diagnosed it as cancer without any biopsy. Has anyone else been diagnosed this way? I'm coming out of the shock of it all but I'm sure that this time next week I'll be sick with fear as the surgery sounds gruesome. Any advice/information you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
