trina Posted May 27, 2007 Share Posted May 27, 2007 I went in 5/7/07 for my first catscan as I have masses in my lower belly. My catscan showed 2 masses on my lower belly ( which we are not concerned this is cancer but it does have to be removed as we can feel it on the outside of my belly and I am in a great deal of pain) Also a 20 x 28 mass on my kidney ( were not concerned about this one either.) But It also showed 2 subcentimeter nodular densities on my right lung. One is right middle lobe and one is the right lower lobe. I had surgery set for june 18th to remove the mass in my belly and my overies. but surgeon called and said they may have to cancel because of the reports they got from my 2nd catscan( could it change in litterly 2 weeks or so?) she said she didnt know if i woud need chemo or radation( not sure WHY she said that) but anyways the lung Dr called me wants to see me asap. I am concerned because of some of the things they have said. now 2 subcentimeter nodular densities thats not serious right? because dont subcentimeter mean small? and besides they cant tell if its cancer by a catscan can they? i mean can they even tell if it looks like cancer by a catscan? I know I have been feeling awful sick and wore down and I am sleeping a lot.Im in a lot of pain from the masses in my belly as well. the Drs have kinda worried and scared me. i mean this cant be that serious right? its only small ones right? what does densities mean? they keep telling me it is serious. I have spoke to 5 drs and I am told the same but subcentimeter nodular densities aint that SMALL? how can they even tell if they think its cancer without a biopsy? I have read here all week and keep reading that normally they just rescan in 3 months but they have already sent me for more then one test. they also said I have to have pulmonary function test. Im just concerned because I think the dr's are making more of this then it is. I mean CANCEL my majior surgery??? can someone help and tell me what 2 subcentimeter nodular densities means? i mean that dont sound to serious to me. that is small right so no serious? I was in chat but noone was there.. i really could use some pep talk if anyone wants to join Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
