Lung Nodule 14 Years Later - Baffled and Concerned
It's been a while since I've been on these boards but I knew immediately where I needed to go for input. I was diagnosed 14 years ago with a 1 cm IDC, no nodes grade 3 tumor. I had surgery, chemo, radiation and tamoxifen. My baseline scans showed a few incidentals but one was a 1 cm (from what I recall) lung nodule that was not of concern. Fast forward to the present and I go in for a calcium score scan for my heart and the report came back showing a spiculated nodule of 19mm in lower left lobe. The recommendation is to follow up with a PET/CT to rule out a slow growing malignancy. Could this same nodule be breast cancer after 14 years with less than doubling in size all that time? The doctor is giving me the option to go straight to biopsy vs. doing the PET. What would you do?
