At my one year anniversary, a nodule was discovered on my unaffected lung. The CAT scan is Friday. Needeless to say, I am a little apprehensive, especially since I am also a breast cancer survivor. Any good thoughts?

    Hi

    I'm very sorry to hear about your finding out about your nodule. 

    I recently just found out in march of 2013 that I have a 4mm nodule on my right lung. My doctor who had done the CAT scan told me to just stop smoking. Im 18 years old and have smoked for 6 years and I'm lost on what to do. 

    Just keep your head up and dont get all bent up and out of shape  about it. 

    If you could just give me some feedback on what I should do, it would be greatly appreciated.
