drewsauntbecki Posted August 21, 2004 Share Posted August 21, 2004 I'm sorry to have to post to a message board, but am searching for answers. My nephew is almost 17 and was just diagnosed with a tumor in his lung. They first thought it was a pulled muscle, then pneumonia, then a pulmonary embolism. Yesterday they did a PET scan and confirmed it is a tumor. He is scheduled to have it and the lung removed on Wednesday. We are all so scared. He has baseball scouts watching him for college. I can find nothing to read that pertains to someone his age. He is otherwise a healthy, non smoking teenager. It's been an awful few days for us. Any guidance or suggestions would be appreciated. thanks, Becki Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
