Second Opinion for lung nodule biopsy

@d41king – Good morning. I've been thinking about your dilemma and I'm not sure that I would wait for 3 months either. Having worked with uranium for years increased the risk of lung cancer, having been exposed to radon gas, a radioactive material plus mining dust. I'm sure that you have had concerns for quite a while about the potential side effects of your exposure. Since you have already decided that you definitely want a second opinion now I'm glad that your dr. will work with you on that. I'm sure that you have felt like a powder keg all of these years. Do you have any large teaching hospitals near you where a second opinion will be easy to secure? Are you coughing a lot?

As mentioned, none of my coworkers have lung issues and I only worked with metals not mining. I’ve never had much concern since I am also very fit and have run 25 marathons. Univ of Colorado Anchutz cancer center is close by but my PCP and the oncologist will choose a good thoracic surgeon for me I’m sure
