Hi @loula, I'd like to add my welcome. Finding out that something isn't right, like finding a mass on the lung, is a really scary and anxiety-ridden time. As you see, you have many members here on Mayo Clinic Connect who will journey alongside you, listen to you, and, where appropriate, share tips and experiences to support you.
I hope you don't mind, but I changed the title of this discussion group to "They found a mass: How do you cope with anxiety and all the tests etc?" Believe it or not, this discussion will help many others too.
I know you're anxiety is running in over-drive right now. Who's wouldn't? Please try to take things one day at a time, even one hour at a time. Don't think about what the future may or may not hold. Today's focus is to do everything in your control today to help yourself for tomorrow. Is the weather nice enough to go out for a walk? What can you do to help you sleep well tonight to help you face tomorrow? Perhaps no frantic Google searches or no screen time in the evening, a nice warm bath if you like baths, meditation. What things work for you?
