been on here before, many of you know me, my plumnologist sent me back yesterday for CT to look at my lungs, back in January, I had one node on the upper lobe of right lung 5.5 mm and one on lower lobe of right lung that was 3 mm, 8 months later, the one on the upper lobe is still 5.5 mm, but things have changed, I now have 6 nodes on the right lung, the upper being the largest still at 5.5 and now there are 4 on the left lung with another being 5.5 mm as well and the rest being around 3 mm, I go back to the plumnologist on Oct 1st, what should I do from there, still seeing an ENT for the elagred lymphnodes on the neck are as well, I justy dont know what to do, they arte not saying it is cancer or not, too small

just asking for help, as far as what I need to ask the doctor, this will only be my 3rd visit to him in a year, What should I ask or demand? any ideas anyone? Or what do you think, maybe cancer maybe not?

My husband had a Pet Scan which scans the whole body. It really is the best scan which shows everything.
That's how they found a spot on his lung.
Just a suggestion, you might want to ask your doctor.

They should definitely tell you if it is cancer or not.
They told my husband his was cancer and removed it.
