Hello everyone...I rarely post but have been a "long time lurker" and follow along with many of you! My husband was dx in 2010 with stage 4 base of tongue scc and was treated with chemo, rads followed by neck dissection. todate all of his follow ups have been positive, however on the last 2 ct they have noted "bands of atelectasis" in his r lung, the 2nd ct noted that these bands had "increased" there was also a note of a small nodule in the lung as well which had not been mentioned prior. The dr. did not make any mention of this and said see you at your next appt. I saw it as I asked for a copy of the CT. does I don't like to be a worry but from what I have read..it is basically a collapsed portion of the lung and it seems odd that they are unconcerned and can't help but wonder if they are just trying to not stress him out with too much info but this is a potential concern! Has anyone else had a similar experience???
