Guest redhead Posted July 19, 2004 Share Posted July 19, 2004 Hi there, My husband was just told that he has a nodule in his right lung and his hilar lymphnode is enlarged. Pulmonolgist recommended removal via surgery since nodule is too small to biopsy. He is a non smoker and very healthy. The nodule is spirulated and not calcified. From the research I've done this doesn't sound good and he probably does have cancer. Any anyone verify this and what should we expect. If he does have his lung removed does he also need chemo? He is with the miltiary and they are taking their time with getting him an appt. to be evaluated for surgery by thoracic surgeon. Should I protest and tell them to hurry. First xray showing nodule was 9 months ago. Retest in May, CT in June, pulmonolgist in July one week ago. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
