I finished radiation about 10 weeks ago for a malignant paraganglioma in the right side of my neck, it had also spread to 4 lymphs. I just had my first follow up PET scan and it showed two 6mm nodules on my right lung. They did a chest CT to make sure the spot were really there and sure enough they showed up on the CT also. My ENT said that the nodules are very small, and not to worry to much about them. He is sending me to see a lung doctor, but I'm not sure when yet, as I just found all this out late on Friday afternoon. My wife and I are both very concerned about these spots, but the doctor does not. Should I be freaking out, is there a chance they are nothing. I have never smoked or anything like that, I had two chest xrays in the fall that were fine. Has anybody else delt with anything like this?
