Bioposy done on lung and I was able to come home whily they wait results so that know what type of cancer.
How can cancer spread this far with no symptoms?????? Lung cancer with no cough, pain or wheezing?
So scared. More for my kids ages 24 and 20 then myself. Been just the 3 of us most of their lives now they will be all alone
I am 51 and an ex smoker and know a bit how you feel-Scared and confused
- I had clean x-rays (last in Oct 2009) and then developed acid reflux and coughed up a TINY bit of blood. Had a cat scan showing a "right hilar/mediastinal mass consistent with malignancy" and now had a PT sacan and getting biopsy on Wed.
What I find crazy is that two weeks ago, I was in the gym for 2 hours, 3 times a week and now am short of breath-ALL IN TWO WEEKS??
