I had a neprectomy in June '04. They now say I have nodules in my lung. Has anyone had this happen?
You may want to do a search of the personal web pages to look for others in this situation. To do this, click on "Personal Web Pages" on the left hand side of this page. Then enter the search criteria you are looking for including "lung and metastasis." If you find someone you would like to contact you can then do so through the CSN internal email system.
Take care and be well,
YES, I HAD A TOTAL KIDNEY, RIB AND LYMPH GLAND REMOVAL IN FEB. OF THIS YEAR. I HAVE NODULES IN MY LUNGS ALSO. I HAVE SEEN 4 DOCTORS AND NONE OF THEM SEEMS THE LEAST BIT CONCERNED ABOUT IT. THEY HAVE TOLD ME THAT 98% OF NODULES ARE NOT CANCEROUS. I HAVE HAD 2 CAT SCANS AND MINE HAVE NOT INCREASED IN SIZE ANY LITTLE BIT SO THEY TOLD ME THAT WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THEM BUT NOT TO WORRY. AT FIRST OF COURSE I WORRIED LIKE CRAZY BUT I HAVE BEEN DOING A LOT OF RESEARCH ABOUT LUNG NODULES AND IF IT WERE KIDNEY CANCER, IT WOULD BE GROWING VERY RAPIDLY. GOOD LUCK!
