Re: 3mm Nodule
Mar 11, 2016
Hey Pumpkin1992....just read your post....I too have nodule, also referred to as a ground glass opacity and just got the news a couple hours ago. I did have lung cancer and had my upper right lobe removed 1 1/2 years ago. Cancer was not outside my lung so I was a stage 1 so no chemo. It was discovered because I went to the ER with chest pains. So you can see why I was intrigued by your post.

My oncologist said they also wanted to ultrasound my liver/gallbladder for possible stones.....and that the nodules were in my left lung. It has scared me but my doctor said another scan in 6 months to see if there's any changes to those nodules but she said she really wasn't that concerned. I saw you said you smoke and wanted to ask you to please consider quiting....my cousin, dad and mother all died from lung cancer and were smokers.....I am the only survivor of this in my family.....so far....I had quit for 11 years prior to my diagnosis and learned that the marker is now 15 years for a person once they quit to have lungs that of someone who never smoked. I wish I'd quit sooner.....I wish I'd never even started.....

None-the-less the only thing going into my lungs now is air :) I have to live to see my son into adulthood and he's only 13 so I have to stay on top of my health for him. Stay strong and it's never too early to quit. it took me a year before I felt like a non-smoker but omg I love not smoking now! Hope you can find the strength to get there too. I'll be thinking about you! Take care!
