Hi all......

Had NSLC surgically removed in Feb 05 and considered myself cancer free until today. Was told that I have a Squamous Cell Carcinoma on my left vocal cord, confirmed through biopsy. Waiting to see radiation therapist ASAP.

Has anybody experienced CA popping up anywhere else, and do I have to move to a different support board?

Thanks for listening.......Rose


Jan 2005 - Flunked stress test ordered because of chest pain. Chest X-ray revealed 2cm mass on left lung between 2 lobes...developed pneumothorax after needle biopy...in-patient. PET scan and CT guided needle biopsy confirm early stage nslc. After Mediastinoscopy Thoracotomy on Feb 17, 2005 with removal of left upper lobe. No chemo or radiation needed.

Developed GERD

follow-up CT Scans and X-rays NED

July 2006 Brain MRI - NED

starting dry cough, pain between shoulder blades..don't worry as per pulmonary specialist...OK then

Hi Rose,

Sorry to hear about the complication. I would think that this board is still the right place for any concerns or support you want to give, get or share.

I had a bout with Squamous Cell also, about a year into my SCLC. I looked around for other sites but my focus and main concern were the SCLC so this has always been my home base.

I've dropped in and dropped out from time to time but still return like a prodigal son or a lost sheep.

Prayers and best wishes.
