    Procedure or Surgery (2nd Biopsy): Down thru the throat, very difficult to reach, needles dont bend.These lymph nodes were kind of in an arch and difficult to reach. Great pulmonologist ordered a special needle and was able to access one with success.

      You say you are Stage 1 and doctor is waiting/watching. How did they determine stage? Was biopsy done that proved the nodule was cancerous?

      KB13, have scattered nodules in both lungs, Rt lobectomy done because of previous biopsy. A biopsy of that showed 2 different cancers at time of surg. I was referred back to my oncologist.I asked if she was sure the others were cancers too and she said yes. One of the biopsies she said was a slow growing type of cancer.

      Okay, Salical, in that case you should get second opinion from major cancer center with an oncologist specializing in lung cancer.
      Wishing you the best. Keep us updated.

      If the nodules are staying the same the cells aren't dividing fast enough for chemo to do a good job. Staying the same is Great as Maybe your body is just able to keep them like that.....

      My husband's lung nodules were watched for several months (March-Dec) but he was part of a study getting monthly updates. He had to have surgery that Dec because one of the nodules kept growing. He was diagnosed with limited neuoendocrine small cell cancer and no treatment was recommended.Nine months later the cancer had come back and grown too much for surgery or cure. Please get a second opinion and don't wait.
