Hi Friends! I recently had a CT of my chest and surprise! The nodule in my lung that was seen on 2 previous CT’s has grown to 7 mm in 8 months. Also a lesion seen on my liver in both scans and disregarded is now being questioned. So... a PET Scan of my lungs and an MRI of my liver are in my future. History - BC 1994 lumpectomy chemo radiation. Melanoma 2005 (too small for treatment) and 2012 same breast recurrence BMX chemo and radiation. I am so scared

(((HUGS))) Hoping you can get those scans quickly to know what it is you are dealing with. Praying for something benign. Do keep us posted. Waiting is the WORST. Hoping you can do something to stay distracted.

Dear jmf424, how are you doing? I hope okay. I had br ca 2005 and now on a chest xray they saw area of calcification (allergy and asthma drs) . Them sent me to pulmonologist who is ordering a ct scan of chest. They saw an area of calcification on xray and it's in the hilar region where everything comes together. I am so afraid.

jmf424, how are you? I was thinking about you. Sorry in my last post I was so needy when you are going through a lot more test right now. I truly hope and pray you are well. I cant believe you didn't get it back for 18 years. It seems like it shouldn't happen that way n I'm at 14 and a half right now but have to deal with lung calcification this week. I'll pray for you!
