Re: Lung nodule: should I have for 1 year or have the CT sooner

hi, i am a 24 year old female and have also had the scare of my lifetime during a recent visit to the cardiologist. i went in for a chest xray and came out with a cancer scare. the doctor had found some sort of non calcified growth on my left lung. they told me that i could opt for a ct scan or come back in three months to check the growth. i think i am going to follow suit and have my CT scan early, like you the suspense is killing me and my family. i had posted on other boards but when i saw you post where you described chest pain it resounded with my symptoms. for the past year since about february i have had an aching pain sometimes pressure in my left side around my heart. since i am a heart patient the first thing they did was run tests and send me home with nitro (other tests still pending), that was before they found the spot....i was just wondering if they said that your chest pain was definitely associated with your nodule or if it was a separate issue....curious
