Hi 👋 Dealing with Nodules?

Recommended Posts

Hi all 👋

So finally saw the specialist on Thursday and he wants me to do a scan in 6 months and if no change still he is fairly certain MPN are probably benign. He was much more reassuring than the doctor has been ..he said there are 3 nodules ( no one has told me this until now... I was imaging like 30 of them 🙃) .. he said they can be as simple as scar tissue from having measles as a child. He also said to me that it would be very unlikely that 3 spots of cancer would spring up at the same time so basically MPN is less suspicious than a solitary nodule in most cases. Anyway what I took from it is If the scan next June shows no change we can relax.

Anyway that’s where it’s at for anyone following the thread. Will update when that scan is complete.

Danielle and others,

I noticed you were referred to a pulmonologist.  My doctor is setting up an appointment with a thoracic surgeon.   Maybe just because she thinks a biopsy is needed?

This thread has a lot of good information.  Thank you all.

Hi 👋 Everyone,

Ive just been for my 6 month scan and subsequent Appt with the lung specialist today and am back to update my thread as promised.

The scan report said no change to the size of nodules, and the specialist said the look all the same but one looks a little “bulky” however it could be just the angle of the scan was slightly different... he is not overly concerned but wants another follow up in 12 months to be sure. From what I’ve read this is standard procedure... I can at least put it to the side for now. 

I just think it’s good for anyone else that might be going through similar and stumbles across this thread to see the whole story play out. The specialist did say half the population over 50 is walking around with these nodules and will never know about it.

Ill be back with anything further.

Love and light to you all 

Dx

Awesome news Danielle.  It’s great to hear from the majority of people who’s nodules are nothing.  Definitely encouraging.

My husband has 5 lymph nodes that are maglinant. They are going to do radiation on them. Three are on the same side as the carcinoma upper right lung and one in the subclavian area and one in neck I believe. GOD bless you.
