AuK Posted February 5 Share Posted February 5 40, female, non-smoker, newly diagnosed with adenocarcinoma in lower left lung. This was an incidental finding back in August 2022 when I went to urgent care for an unrelated reason and the doctor saw a spot in my lung that wasn‘t there in an xray from 8 years ago. Followed up with a CT the next day and a referral to a pulmonologist. Nodule indeterminant 1.6cm. Had bloodwork to check for fungal infections and auto immune diseases that could cause lung nodules followed by PET scan when the bloodwork came back negative. Had an unsuccessful CT guided biopsy in September, finally had the repeat biopsy in January because I had pneumonia in November related to the first biopsy. Got the results the next day after the biopsy. Waiting to be scheduled for RATS lobectomy this month of February. Hoping it‘s not in any lymph nodes, but feeling very lucky it was found now and not later as I have no symptoms associated with lung cancer and am otherwise very healthy.
