Re: lobulated and ground glass nodules...
From what I read the ground glass nodule could mean cancer, inflammation or infection. Some do a wait and see with regular scans, some do needle biopsy. Not all needle biopsies get cells to determine what's going on.
The lobulated nodule means theres many lobes/sections compiled together creating the nodule, and many times can mean cancer.
Again, this is from what I read.
does your mom want you to be involved with her appointments/info seeking, or is this for you only?
I suggest you go on the lung cancer forum, ask many questions there and compile a list for yourself and your mom to get the answers needed for her required care.
I wasn't involved in much of my mom's situation regarding her lung cancer, but she did put off seeking answers for her many years of coughing, discomfort, etc. because of fear and denial (she smoked almost her whole lifetime).
Today, it's a completely different world regarding access to information.
It's all a matter of perspective!
