I went to my PC yesterday for surgery clearance (scheduled for rotator cuff repair on Wednesday). I had a CT scan last Friday and am scheduled to see oncologist in January.
Anyway, my PC told me that the CT scan showed a small spot on my upper right lung. The report says: "small pleural-based nodule in the periphery of the posterior segment right upper lobe measuring 7 mm (it was 2 mm in January 2017). It also says it is "nonspecific, but may reflect a developing metastatic nodule". They recommend a repeat CT scan in 3 months.
So now I am a bit worried (scratch that...very worried) but also a bit peeved that I was told by my oncologist in January that the scan was clear.
The last time I was very lucky, the cancer was found early, it had not had a chance to spread. I lost the upper left lobe to squamous cell lung cancer.
The past few months I have had this nagging gut feeling that something is wrong, now I feel like someone just pulled the rug out from under me. If I had known in January, I would not have allowed the oncologist to wait a year to do a re-scan.
