    Approximately 1 year ago I was found to have a 9mm nodule in my left upper lung. I was 43 then. Maybe I can help

    Results came in and they told me that it has calcified but, now they have found another one same size 6mm and I have to go back for another ct in 3 months to see if it has grown.

    Nancy, There is great hope. I am a 3 year lung cancer survior. I was treated @ the Mayo Clinic. I did 5 wks. Chemo & Radation, Surgery and 10 more wks of chem. It has been hard, but well worth it. I have a husband 2 older children and two younger. I had a team of 8 doctors that decided because of my young age and other good health to give it to me full dose. It has been sucessful. We lost my mother-in-law a year ago from the same non small cell. Give it all you've got. I will be here for you. Kathy from Minnesota
