Schnib Posted April 11, 2021 Share Posted April 11, 2021 Hello all, First of all, let me say reading through the comments in this forum has been a God send. Unfortunately I'm here due to uncertainty with my father. He is a breast cancer survivor of 5 years, having been discharged from oncology last year. Recently he has been having chest pain which had been put down to a pulled muscle in the chest. However, after no improvement in the chest pain, had an x-ray which revealed a nodule on the lower right (suspected to be on the lung). Nodule is estimated to be 13mm-19mm long. CT scan is booked and from my understanding and previous experience on the breast cancer journey, nothing much more can be deduced until CT results are back. I'm trying to remain positive; nodule isn't small but it also hasn't been classed as a mass. However, it's very much on my mind that this could be a new cancer or a secondary cancer as a result of recurrence of breast cancer. Trying to be positive that nodules can be caused by a number of other reasons but also aware that the previous cancer and the pain symptom could be negative factors. I know you are all living through your own battles so thought I'd say hi and see whether anyone has experience with a similar situation?
