taxmeless Posted March 18, 2017 Share Posted March 18, 2017 Hi, I am hoping for some insight and advice. 30 days ago I went for low dose smoker CT scan as I just turned 55 and smoked for 40 years (stupid me). The scan showed I had a 8mm solid nodule with minimal ground glass attenuation ( I guess from reading online that means part solid with very little GGO and that's the worse kind of nodule?). My GP followed that up with a PET CT 1 week later that came back with zero uptake anywhere. Reading online a 8mm nodule has a very bad prognostication with PET CT due to its limited size. What's more, my blood tests came back with elevated liver enzymes and elevated calcium levels. I read online that high levels of these on blood tests reflect a potential malignancy that is now sending cancer cells throughout my body. I was following the Fleisher guideline and waiting 90 days from my first cat scan to see if it maintained its size. Then head to a cancer center for wedge biopsy if it didnt clear. Now I wonder if its too late. That I am doomed. I am so scared. Please help me. Should I just go to Sloane or Moffitt now and get a VAT wedge biopsy or wait? Am I headed for death?
