I'm 28, male, will be 29 on July 5th. I just got my results this morning from blood work and CT scan. Ct Scan shows a 9mm nodule in my right lung. Dr. says he wants me to wait 4-6 months to see if it grows any before attempting a biopsy, he stated the biopsy is too risky.
My Mono# was 0.7 and Mono% was 9.8. My lymp% was 20.0
The scary part is my CRPHS is a 21.8 (stating that 0.0 to 4.9 normal range but anything over a 3.0 is high risk)
I have been short of breath, coughing a lot, and always seem to be getting upper respitory infections. In fact 3 months ago I just got over pneumonia. that's how they found the mass in my lung via xray. He wanted to wait til the pnuemonia was good and gone.
Everything I have read states anything over a 8mm should be set for a biopsy. Is this right? I'm really confused and really don't know what to do. The Dr. was really vague and didn't seem to want to say anything but refer me to a cardiologist due to the CRPHS levels being so high.
How long did you have to wait after your first CT scan? How many CT scans did you have to have? Should I get a second opinion or wait to see what the cardiologist says? I'm not sure what to do.. but I'm tired of the "waiting game."
