I have been through kidney cancer with my mom. She had a radical nephrectomy 2 years this past September. When she went for her yearly ct scan last month they found tiny, tiny nodules on the lower lobe of her right lung. The doctor said they will do another ct scan in 6 months but nothing until then. Since her past 3 ct scans never showed these nodules I'm concerned that it is cancer. I'm looking for input from people that have been through this themselves or with a loved one and wondering if the nodules were nothing to be concerned about or were they linked to cancer. I have been through cancer with my husband and mom, as well as a quadruple bypass with my father. Since my parents are divorced and neither is remarried I am the person they both rely on when they have health issues. I may be just borrowing worry that I don't need. I'd just like some input from people in "the know".
