Rheumatoid Lung Nodules And Cancer

Rheumatoid Lung Nodules And Cancer

My lone lung nodule is growing and my dr wants me to have a biopsy if it gets much larger. Has anyone know of someone or experienced lung cancer from a nodule?

I didn't have lung cancer but I do have multiple lung nodules. The largest was 2.5 cm. I also had ground glass opacities when they were found. I was referred to a pulmonologist. He recommended a biopsy. The biopsy was negative. I have a new lung CT once a year and some shrunk, some stayed the same and there are some new ones. I know how scary it is to know what the possibility is. I will pray for a good outcome and your peace of mind. The good news is that they know about it and are taking the extra precautions necessary. With lung cancer most of the time it is caught very late. *Hugs*

I have on my lung. Never grew. The doctors observed it for a couple years. Found it when I was getting ready for knee replacement surgery. I also have on my thyroid also. Found that when they did their last CT of my lung. Maybe if it is growing they just want to make sure it isn't cancer. Doctors run more test now to save a law suit.

Thank you. It is scary. Add a diagnosis of bronchiastasis sp? On top of that. RA is destroying me one organ at a time!
