bookah212 Posted March 9, 2007 Share Posted March 9, 2007 Hello everyone. I am new here. I was directed by a friend on an unrelated site. I am actually here to support my sister. She is three years younger than me and possibly facing lung cancer. Our mother died of breast cancer after a 6 year battle in 2001 and our dad had a rare form of extramedullary (spinal) cancer that spread to his lungs. My sister is 26 and after a bout of mono had a CT scan in September. The scan showed a 5mm nodule on her left lung. They did a follow up scan in January that showed it had grown to 7mm. She saw a pulmonary specialist that ordered an MRI (her insurance wouldn't pay for a PET). The MRI showed two small spots on her spine. She also has enlarged lymph nodes so last Friday her lung surgeon scheduled a surgery for tomorrow. It will either be VATS or an open lung biopsy depending what he can get at with the scope. Just wondering if anyone had any advice or suggestions. Thank you so much! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
