    Hello and welcome, we are happy to have you with us. Please feel free to join in the conversations. Here is a link to our cancer dx page for your type of cancer. Take a look at it to get you started on some information. You will notice at the bottom of that page 4 of our active users who have had that journey already, you may wish to contact them for their experience and wisdom. Also, I encourage you to go to the questions page now by clicking on the questions tab at the top of the page and post what is the most pressing issue you have right now. This will introduce you to the community and get you started with the help you need right now.


    There are also subtypes listed on this page to narrow down the type of cancer to match your dx. Also, if you can take a few minutes and fill in some details of your journey so far, it will help others as they try to answer questions for you, it also helps others as they search through the database to find someone like themselves. Confirming your email will allow you to receive updates and notices from the site when someone answers your questions or writes on your wall.

    Thanks for being with us and let me know if I can help you find any information on the site.

      Like PO, I had different diagnoses but wanted to share that I had Hodgkins in the first two diagnoses, then head and neck cancer 18 years later with tonsil cancer. It's not uncommon to start with a diagnosis of one type of cancer, then get a second diagnosis later with something different, but not everyone does by any means. We hope you get clean and healthy.

      I wanted to add that I have several small nodules in my lungs found by CT scan due to my abdominal cancer in 2013. Although they are watching them to see if they grow or change, they've told me the longer they don't change, the less likely they are cancer and are probably scar tissue from an old infection, as above.

      Best wishes that your biopsy shows scar tissue or benign.

      Hi Zeke, thanks for your question. I have learned through talking with other patients and my wife's oncologist that when treatments (ie, radiation and/or chemotherapies) are administered for other cancer(s), that patients become potentially more susceptible to lung cancer. Radiation exposure during regular testing on frequent basis may also contribute.

      As my other contributors have provided, a needle biopsy can provide a more definitive answer than scans. We are hoping for a definitive negative result from this biopsy but if positive that it's identified early where treatment opportunities are more effective. Please keep us posted.
