I have unbelievable news. 6 weeks ago, I had a scan done that showed a mass on my lung and a lymph node that lit up. My Onc/Gyn said the cancer was back and I needed to go to a thoracic surgeon to get a biopsy. The Thoracic Dr took a look and said wait 3 weeks and rescan... there was a chance this might be an infection. I just got back from my Doctor and the mass is gone! No new findings!!!! The PET scan reacted to an infection, not cancer! Thank you all for the support and kindness.

    Glad to hear that the news
    Glad to hear that the news was positive-kinda funny to be happy to have an infection, but better than the alternative!
