Well, I hate to break the streak of NEDs we've been getting lately, but my CT scan from yesterday was not good. I have 2 nodules in my right lung.
I had the scans yesterday but the computer system wasn't working properly and my doctor did not get the radiology reports. He did have the scans and thought they looked good however he did say he saw a lung nodule. He said we'd have to wait for the report. I called back this afternoon to check on the reports and got the bad news over the phone.
Looking back at my past 3 CT scan reports, it appears there was something there from the beginning but they have just reached a size that has become alarming. One has grown from ..4 X .3 cm to 1.2 X 1.4 cm in the past 6 months. The other has grown from 2mm to .8 X .8 cm.
I'll be seeing an oncologist soon after January 1 because most people are on holiday next week. All I know to do now is see what the oncologist says and make plans for phase 2 of this mess.
