Hi, I just found out this week by xray I had a 7mm spot on my lungs. That led to many more tests like CT, blood, ultra sound and pet.
The PET shows 2 lymph nodes (one by each lung in the center of the chest) by the lungs light up. The lung nodes light up also making several small spots on the PET. The 7mm spot showed up on the pet but none of the doctors could find it to show us.
I have been on anti depressants in the past and currently I'm not taking them. I have asthma and know based on a Mayo Clinic study that I am in a higher risk group but always thought if it came back it would be in my breast again. I had a ping pong ball removed one year ago then pre cancer on the other breast removed in Feburary of this year.
What do you think about Tamoxifen after spots? I am worried about the side effects like hot flashes and damage to my hormone system.
If you've had this experiance what did the doctor recomend to you?
