Matt Posted February 23, 2021 Share Posted February 23, 2021 A CT scan back in November 2020 caught two nodules that ended up being malignant after a biopsy. Her first nodule is in the left lung and is 1.8cm. This was diagnosed as adenocarcinoma and her second one in her right one is 1cm and is also adenocarcinoma. However, we met with her doctor yesterday and he believes this is a unique and rare case because he believes these are two different cancers and did not metastasize. Her PET scan shows that these nodules are contained in the lungs. His treatment plan is to giver her an MRI to ensure the cancer isn’t in the brain, take tissue from her chest lymph nodes to ensure there isn’t cancer there, and ensure her heart can handle surgery. The doctor would like to remove the cancer in her left lung (if all the above pass) and then 6 weeks later remove the one in her right lung. My question is has anyone been through anything like this? If so, what can I do to help her prepare. I’m am praying that the cancer is not in her lymph nodes or brain so we can start treatment through surgery. My life felt like it came crashing down after this news back in November but I’ve learned to be strong and be in my moms corner. Any advice would help tremendously and I am thankful I found this group. If more information is needed, please let me know and I can try to provide it.
