Andrea Posted August 31, 2006 Share Posted August 31, 2006 I was on my way to work, my parents got a phone call to be at pulmo office, so off we went. He came in just for us. And the nurse wondered why my dad's blood pressure was off the roof. "Is it serious?" he asked when he got the call. "Well I am sure the dr has a good reason to call you in" she said Anyway, upon further review, the biopsy sample yielded atypical cells. 5 different pathologists are confused and conclude it as a low-grade malignancy, but it was sent to Mayo clinic for further evaluation. He is calling it a LC until told it is not b/c it is not normal to have atypical cells in a lung nodule. Tomorrow is PET and Wed is Brain MRI. He called my mom's onc, but it figures, he never takes a vacation and now he is on one. Nothing he can do right now anyway. The big concern is the multiple nodules. Best case is the rest are something weird, and just this one is cancer. But the chances of that, who knows. We are still in shock, hasn't hit us yet.
