Lung cancer

Hi I came across this site while trying to get more information on copd. I was diagnosed with it several years ago and it's been worse the last year. Now it looks like I may have lung cancer. Chest x Ray showed something suspicious so I was booked in for an emergency ct scan yesterday. I am having a Broncoscopy on Tuesday so hopefully I will get the results then. Both my parents died from lung cancer so I am worried sick. Everyone keeps telling me I'll be fine, but. When I spoke to the specialist nurse she said that she and the consultant had discussed the possibility of cancer. I am in a lot of pain, lost weight and bad cough that won't go away.

Thanks for listening.

Hi Pat. I wish you all the best for Tuesday, but I'm not surprised you are anxious, anyone would be. Perhaps you could have a chat with someone on the BLF helpline when they are back in on Monday.
