Maybe its too early for me to post here, but just discovered last week I have lung cancer, and my pulmonary surgeon ordered a brain MRI and found 2 "concerning" spots, and cancelled the futher diagnostic stuff for my lungs. I dont even have an oncologist yet, they were supposed to call me back yesterday. Of course its the weekend now and I'm left nhot knowing...

You always will have hope.
Lance Amstrong had testicular cancer that spread to the lungs and to the brain. He is doing fine now.

I am sorry about your news.

It's never to early to have support when you are going through a difficult time. I am sorry it can be so stressful, but please remember, one day at a time. I was a basket case for the first four days of my diagnosis and the 5th and 6th day I was hospitalized for a biopsy. But, over time, I have learned to slow down my thinking of the future, and to take each day one by one. To take each Dr. appointment one a a time, and to really stop and think. I know it's not very comforting, but someone is always here, to share what you are going through, and to give you HOPE!
