New and just sussing things out

Hi all. I am a bloke of 50. My lovely partner is awaiting the results of further xrays after a shadow was seen on the intial xray. As she has been a heavy smoker and also has a history of lung cancer in the family I have been reading up on this awful disease. I am hoping that it wont come to this but reading the posts on here has taken some of the terror away. I would gladly swap places with her if I could. She has primary school age kids and they need her. I am hoping that my prayers will be answered when the results come enxt week but if they arent I am at least a little better informed now.

Peace to all!
