FIBROSIS!!!

Hi, just had the results through from my 3.5cm & 2cm lung biopsyies, one was a non cancerous benine mass and the other was scarring containing fibrosis? Full lung/chest scan showed nothing else apart from my known bullous emphysema, no follow ups required as these two were taken out.

Is this right and will it return?

The surgeon told my husband that there was no absolute guarantee that a benign nodule won’t return, but he could remove it again if it did...that’s the beauty of benign, they don’t spread! John’s surgeon froze the site to discourage it. Three years on, and so far so good.

Good luck, David 💕

No wonder. It’s always worrying when doctors say something but don’t explain it. Thankfully there’s always someone here who knows what it means. I often wonder how you’re doing, I hope you’re as well as can be 👍

I think a good many of us probably have an element of fibrosis scarring within our dodgy lungs which is quite different from a diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis or IPF so in my opinion Dave absolutely nothing to worry about and anyway it is an ex tumour sitting in someones petri dish in a lab somewhere and no longer resident so bye bye redundant tissue. :)

Good for you David, Agree with Ski's, I too had a "Nodule on my Left lung, Had to be seen to "Not Grow" before I was Listed for transplant, every 4 months I have my "Tracking" at QE, The scans show it is Stable. Stay Strong Hun. XXX

I have Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis - lots of scarring/fibrosis. Had "the cancer conversation". No signs. No guarantees but I would say don't worry about the fibrosis - it's probably normal scarring- you can get it following flu etc. So so pleased u have great result. Getting back to living with less worry!
