I had kidney removed 2009 8 CM. Nodules now in left right upper and lower 6mm, 6mm, 6mm, 9mm,8mm, 1cm. CTCA doc says she wants to first bronchial biopsy now suggesting CT guided needle biopsy to determine if its cancer and if so is it renal in my lungs Mets or new lung. Have waited for almost a year and nearly all listed were 1/4 the size now. I suggested PET scan would tell if its NOT cancer if they dont LITE up and no risk from needle of a collapsed lung...Any advice or agreements or anything at all much appreciated...apple
