i am not sure wether or not i have lung cancer, i am in a very low risk group. have had x-rays,ct and pet, all show a nodule of about 12mm but so far all signs show it to be benign. have had blood work done as well and it shows no increase in anything that would indicate any kind of cancer. the lung doc said that she wants to remove the nodule just in case and have it sent for test. there are no other nodules anywhere in the lungs,lymph nodes are not affected and the only sympton i am having is some minor shortness of breath which has been preliminary diagnosed as possible asthma. there has been some weight loss but for me that is nothing new when i get ill. my appetite has not been affected and i believe most of the time period when i was not eating was being done because of mental fears of it causing some more shortness of breath which was probably due more to an asmtha attack. all signs are indicating that this thing is not cancer and the lung doc says that if we remove it now,even if it is malignant, that should be the end of it as it has not spread anywhere else in the lungs,there is one other nodule of 5mm on the liver but it to has been determined to be benign.
