I have just had a Lung Nodule found by CT Scan in my left lung. It is 1 CM in size and in the lower end of the upper left lobe. I underwent a Needle Biopsy and I overheard the Doctor say that preliminary result were positive for Cancer.
I am waiting for my Doctor to call with final results. Anyone know how doctor doing needle biopsy could have a preliminary result? How do they determine if it is cancer if it spread? WHat should I expect as next steps if it is cancer? My dad just died in March from Lung Cancer, I smoked for 15 years and have stopped for 6 years. Doctor says the rest of my lungs look great! Any comments are appreciated. I am scared and have a 2 year old daughter to raise. Anyone know what survival might be?
Thanks for listening
