Bruce Posted February 24, 2018 Share Posted February 24, 2018 Hi everyone, I am currently 45 years old. I have never smoked and have never been diagnosed with cancer. A year and a half ago, they found a 4 mm nodule on my right mid lung. It was an incidental finding during a heart calcium scan. I was told to wait a year and then get a CT scan. The 12 month scan showed the nodule to be 6.5 mm and another 2 mm nodule was also found nearby. The pulmonologist told me that the nodule may not have grown at all due to the fact that the CT for the heart did not provide the best view. He also said that the 2 mm nodule was out of view in the original scan so it might have been there all along. I was told to return for another follow up scan in 6 months. My scan is this coming Monday. When I search for info on lung nodules I find a lot of information about lung cancer, but very little about cancer that has matastisized to the lung. I have no symptoms other than a cough with post nasal drip that appears to be from laringitis which resulted from a bout with the flu in early January. My question is, what percentage of lung nodules that are discovered incidentally with no symptoms end up being cancer that has spread from another region of the body? Any possible info will be greatly appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
