Hi, I am new here. I was diagnosed with a lung nodule in my upper left lung in December. It was found after LD-CAT. It was followed up by a PET scan which showed that it had not metastasized as far as they could tell. The PET was not definitive but they are pretty sure it is cancer because of the shape. They are going to use VATS to biopsy nodule and look at nodes. If it is cancer, they will remove the left lobe. I am very comfortable with the Drs and what they have said makes sense. I am scheduled for pulmonary tests and cardiac clearance in the next week and if all is well, they will schedule the surgery shortly there after. I am scared silly, but taking one day at a time. It appears that it was caught early and they have said that the lobectomy would be curative. Do you think I need to get a second opinion?
