Recurring lung nodule

Recurring lung nodule

I had a lung lobectomy 9 months ago.  They removed my bottom right lobe.  They said I had stage 1 cancer  non small cell.   Today they called and said the found a new nodule on my upper left lung.  I think this news is bothering me worse than the first time.  They are going to set up a biopsy.  The nodule is 1.5 cm.  The fact it is on my other lung is what scares me the most.  I came here because I have no one else to talk to.  I just turned 64 last week.

Hi Ernest,

 

Welcome to the forums, here we're happily embrace and stand by the sides of those who need assistance. I really wish to say Happy Birthday and wanted to ask, how it was but unfortunately i couldn't find the correct words. Did you already have your biopsy or are you still waiting?
