Christine79 Posted October 19, 2018 Share Posted October 19, 2018 Hello, I did an introduction yesterday but I haven’t seen anything on it so I am not sure i did it right. I was wandering if anyone ever heard of cancer cells spreading to the mediastinum (center of the chest) already with a small nodule? Mine is 8x11 or 8x8mm; depending on which doctor I talk too. It had an suv of 3.6 and there were two areas in the mediastinum that showed uptake. It says no noticeable enlarged lymph nodes but to follow up. Everything I have read says the nodule can be tiny but if the cancer cells have spread already to the mediastinum then it is automatically stage 3. They cannot biopsy it because it is too small for where it is located. Close to my heart and deep in the lung. Mine is not spiculated either. I have a fourth catscan (this time with contrast) scheduled on Nov 1st. Which will be 18 weeks since this thing was incidentally found. Based on whatever they see on it I will be referred to a surgeon. So I just wander if anyone has heard of this situation and knows if it can already be spreading being so small?! Thank you, Christine Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
