This is not necessarily cancer. I could be an old injury, scar from pneumonia, etc. What do the doctors say? She may have to wait a few months, take a CT scan, and see what it develops into. In the meantime, I'd start checking out a more holistic approach, eg, eating only food that is organic, learning to meditate to deal with stress, etc. Best wishes to you and your Mom, she must be really scared. I have Stage 3B lung cancer, 3 tumors, inoperable, so I am all too familiar with the fear and pain. Right now, I'm playing the excrutiating waiting game too. Wishing you both all the best. xxoo
