mary1958 Posted April 4, 2007 Share Posted April 4, 2007 Hi! I am not sure where the best spot is to post my questions but I guess I will start here. As I indicated in my intro, I have been found to have upwards of 8 or 9 nodules in both lungs. The largest is 5 mm. I have an appointment with a pulmonologist on Monday but am not quite sure of what I should be asking when I see him. The information I seem to be hearing is that small nodules are hard to biopsy. Should I expect to be told that it will be a watch and wait game? At what point may a PET scan be considered? From experience, can the look of the nodules, no matter how small, be more indicative of malignancy versus a benign finding? I have so many questions but not sure which should be asked given the small size of the nodules. Is there a significance to a larger number of nodules versus a signle nodule? Are these the questions I should be asking? If anyone has any suggestions of things I should be asking please let me know! Any information you can give me so I can be prepared will be greatly appreciated! Mary Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
