Hi...a spot could just be a "spot"...a shadow....scarring of tissue from infection...a totally benign "spot"...but it could be an early sign of cancer...so you NEED to find out which..many people have "spots" that are just followed for changes...if it looks suspicious..it may need to be biopsied....and a single spot...even if is something....it could possibly be early enough to catch..that you don't have to look for the "survival"....survival could mean the rest of your natural life...so if you haven't questioned...please do...push for answers...the "poor survival" for people who originally had a "spot" is due to not following up....not wanting to hearing the worst...and hoping for the best..or Doctors playing the odds and not ordering additional tests.....get it checked and diagnosed from a lung specialist....1) will put your mind at ease if nothing...or 2) if it is something...catching it early could mean the difference between living out your normal life expectancy...or struggling to survive past the survival rates...please be proactive with your health....keep in touch...c
