Lorin Posted November 17, 2017 Share Posted November 17, 2017 My Mom was recently xrayed to rule out Pneumonia and two small nodules, less than 1 cm, were found on her right lung. A cat scan showed three additional nodules. Im presuming smaller than first two as they didn't show up on xray. She is 78 years old and has energy and outlook equivalent to someone much younger. Non smoker, weighlifter, gardener, traveler. But years ago a benign breast biopsy really set her back more than expected. My question is, at this early stage is it realistic to wait a few months to monitor for growth before proceeding with biopsies? Im wanting input on non invasive first steps but read in another forum that more testing and scans is important to know what you are dealing with.
