A CT scan was done of my heart and a nodule was found in each lung. Each was stage 1, not related to one another.
I had quit smoking two years prior. The surgeon told me the cancer would have been stage 2 or 3 if I had not quit when I did. After two surgeries and chemotherapy, I am one and a half years cancer free. I can't urge people enough that if you can't quit, please get screened. I feel blessed x 10.
