I am a 37-year-old female. I had surgery on June 8, 2018 on a lung nodule that was randomly found on a CTA of the heart that my cardiologist ordered because of my bradycardia. All of my doctors were convinced it would be benign. I don't even think my surgeon really thought surgery was necessary. However, it was adenocarcinoma, Stage 1A.
I had no symptoms and this could have easily spread to Stage 4 before I knew I had cancer. I'm very thankful that it was caught early.
