quickie question: Did you have symptoms that warrented a CT scan of lungs or was the mets found routinely? AND what was seen?
I am 9 weeks post OP left partial for RCC clear stage 1 grade 2. I never had any surveillance done to r/o mets but this week got pretty sick and was in the hospital...turns out I have Pneumonia and pleural effusions(small) left lower lobe of lungs. THEY SEE NO masses. CAN the effusions be an early CA popping up? Did anyone with mets to LUNG have effusions?
MY symptoms were severe lightheadedness with fast heart rate and intense pain with breathing in my left flank all the way up to throat. I had IV abx and am home but they want me to see pulmonary...just wondering
