      LWC, I’m really sorry to hear about the new nodule. What’s the next step?

      LiveWithCancer, I hope, of course, it’s benign.

      BoiseB, most hospitals are taking utmost precautions. I have my annual mammogram and sonogram at the end of June. I’m not worried about the hospital; I’m concerned about getting there. Either public transportation or car service (will probably take car service, but then I’m still concerned about its degree of sterilization). It’ll be odd to have a mammogram and sono while wearing a mask. Bare breasts but covered face. They’re doing only temperature checks, not the nose plunge (I’m relieved!).

      Thanks, @Bug and @Carool. It was small and the doctor said if there is a benign tumor in lungs, it often shows in the lower node. He doesn't know whether to expect it to be (1) gone next time, (2) the same, or (3) growing. Naturally, i hope it will be gone!!!!!! But, if not, i guess we will resume treatment. I have been treatment free since April 2019 so i have had a nice break!
