Sarah P., FL
A spot showed up on a CT scan on a fatty cist on my shoulder. My docotor ordered a CT of my left lung. It showed crushed glass. We waited three months and I had another CT scan. It remained the same. We waited another three months and there was a change. We decided I needed a PET Scan. It was not distinct. Between a 0-10, it was a one. I went to see a cardiovascular & thoracic surgical specialist and he felt it was a low grade cancer and the upper left lobe needed to be removed if he could not get a biospy while he as doing minimally invasive robotic surgery. He removed the obe and the nodes and surrounding area cancer free! Now I am scheduled to see an Oncologist Nov. 20.
