I too had a lung ct and they fi found a nodule but say its benign and do a yrly ct to keep an eye on its size.the first yr they did a ct every 4 mths ,the second and third year every six mths ,now yearly .its the size that determines if its a benign nodule and if it gets larger. Your dr.can give you good news on this i pray. Blessingd

I had a ct scan, and was told to come back for another scan in 8 months. After second scan consultant says, your nodules have gone! Didn't know I had any ! Saved me worrying!

Natural to be worried. I had one which they ‘monitored ‘. It does worry you but I tried to think that it could be nothing or if it was something then they have caught it early. Mine has gone now, I hope you will have the same news. Hugs.

Crossed fingers it will be nothing. Mine wasn’t and after a biopsy I had to have a lobe removed but that was three years ago. I walk, I talk, I breathe as well as before so do not despair.

Hi Katy, it is very hard not to be worried, but the truth is that worrying will not help neither will it make any difference to the result. I have been in the same position, twice the results have been that the nodules were benign.

If it is not, as with my third PET Scan, then the same advice applies, worrying will not make any difference. It will have been caught early, early detection is the key to success and there are various treatments available that can rid you of it. Staying positive is a big, big help, worrying will just be a drain on your energy. I had SABR (Radiotherapy) earlier this year, in May, and the tumour has now shrunk by half and should continue shrinking.

Fingers crossed for you that it is just a false alarm, which happens in the majority of cases.

Hi Katy, Please try and not worry too much. I too had a Nodule on the same lower Lung when having my assessment for Lung Transplant, I was told until the Nodule Disappeared or didn't grow , then they would put me on the List. I had t wait a few months and had further CT scans, it didn't grow, so I'm on the List. I have check ups every 3/4 months. It is easy to say don't worry, But please stay Positive and Calm. Very Best Wishes Katy. XXX

I too have lung nodules, my next scan is on Wednesday. I hope everything goes well for you. Apparently lots of people have lung nodules which cause no problems and are never found unless they have an X-ray for something else. Then they are monitored, and most are benign! Xx
