My husband and I are both having lung problems. He is 56, I am 42. We just did a CT scan of his heart, which caught a partial view of his lungs, showing a 4cm mass. We do not know what it is yet but he is having terrible chest and neck pain, trouble breathing, pain and fatigue.
I am having a lot of trouble too but nothing seen yet. We were both smokers for years. He quit last month. I just quit a few days ago.
I will never smoke again.
I am so scared. I am sick to my stomach. We have a 6-year-old.

It went well. It was really fast and my husband was in good spirits. He is handling this like a trooper. I think we'll find out the results at the thoracic surgeon on Tuesday morning. I hope he doesn't see anything but that one spot! We do the biopsy on Wednesday. You know, the PET Scan guy said not to freak until we have the biopsy. The lung doctor already said he knew it was cancer but the PET scan guy shook his head and seem upset about that. He said, "You don't know anything until the needle goes in." He gave me some hope. I don't know, the lung doctor was pretty grim, he said he figured, at best, it was IIIB. He said he knows from years of looking at tumors. We are hoping for the best, but maybe, ya know, maybe? ?????
I last replied to you on the Digestive-Disorder board.
I guess you have had your tests by now. How did they go. I haven't forgotten you and you remain in my prayers (both of you).
Wishing you the best.
I am 73yrs old and started lung cancer treatment in March. A month ago my PET scan showed no more cancer. Last week my doctors read the latest CAT scan and said, "See you in 3 months. Start working out to build yourself back up." Be strong and know it can be beat. NIT
