djhartm Posted April 2, 2020 Share Posted April 2, 2020 Hello everyone, I had an MRI done yesterday on liver as part of ongoing hemochromatosis diagnosis. My doctor phoned me and said they discovered a mass ~3cm on the lower part of my left lung and ordered a CT scan, which I am getting tomorrow. Having just lost a friend to cancer, I am very scared. I'm an otherwise healthy 51 y/o non-smoking male. The doctor said it could be an infection (I got sick traveling abroad recently - could not get tested for Covid-19), an artifact from an old infection, or cancer. I had a clean chest x-ray in 2017 when I had a persistent dry cough, which I have now again. I'm scared because 3cm seems rather large. He said the MRI imaging was very poor, so it was difficult to assess at this point, but they wanted to look at it ASAP. Trying not to panic.
