Carrie5260 Posted May 16, 2021 Share Posted May 16, 2021 My name is Carrie. During a follow up CT scan for back pain, the radiologist found a mass in my left lung. I’ve had a CT scan of the chest/abdomen/pelvis, a PET scan, and an MRI of my brain. The mass is between 3 and 4 cm. It did light up on PET scan. I’ve seen two oncologists and one surgeon so far. The second oncologist was a second opinion. They disagree on my plan of care, but we’ve agreed to a repeat CT on June 7th. If the mass is same size or larger, I’ll be scheduled for surgery. There’s still a chance that this could be inflammation or infection, but the oncologist seems convinced it’s cancer. I’m terrified. I can’t get rid of the knot in my stomach and chest. Does this sound familiar to anyone else ? How do you deal with the anxiety ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
