Routine CT Scan 12 years after RCC-Tumor Lower Left Lung - Nvr Smoked
Just found out today. I have a tumor with "tendrils" growing in my left lung. Doc says it is on the lower-outer-rear of the lung. Says that may be a good thing because easier to operate on it. It is 3 cm on the part they can see. Found it on an abdominal CT follow up to RCC 12 years ago. Getting the full CT later this week or early next. I have never smoked a day in my life. I am trying to keep it together, for my wife and kids. I am 55 with 4 grown kids and 5 grands. I have lived through open heart surgery, Right Partial Nephrectomy, Gall Bladder Removal, and I plan on getting through this. But I really need people to talk to. I don't want to make my wife of 25 years even more nervous so I am playing the part of non-chalant. But I am freaking out on the inside. There are so many things I want to do before I die. I am just not ready.
