Solid Lung Nodules

Hi Ladies,

I hope you are all doing well. It's been a long time since I've posted anything so I hope you forgive my absence.

At my catscan in October they found several small 2-3 mm lung nodules. My oncologist said not to worry as they were most likely nothing. I had my next 6-month scan just last week and they found multiple new nodules measuring up to 4 mm. My onc is going to rescan my lungs in three months. Has anyone else had lung nodules and, if so, what was the outcome? Do you think waiting three months is a good strategy?

Thanks so much - be well!

Nancy

    Hard to not be worried, but incidental sub-centimetre (< 1cm) lung nodules are super common in the general population. Good chance they would find something like this in people, especially as they get older, with or without a history of cancer. Fortunately, mos end up being nothing. Hope this helps!

    I have one. No idea what it is. It didn't change even after my treatment reduced all the other mets but it's too small to biopsy to find out if it's cancer or not. So we just keep an eye on it. Three months is a normal scan interval!

    nowaldron: are you still getting a scan? Will that be in July? Do you feel like something is going on in your lungs?

    You may want to ask this in the "mets to lung" topic and read through older posts.
