New on this sight..it is hard to find other stage 1a people..(yes, I know I am lucky) My adenocarcinoma was 10mm x 10mm. spiculated, invasive, moderately differentiated (grade 2) acinar predominant (80%) ALK pos (42%)..no lymph node involvement, no viscural/plueral involvement either. so, here is my questions: I am beginning to think at this very early stage histological features are not important, if at all. I think size matters a LOT, and grade of tumor (3 being aggresive) so..wondering also, cannot find on path report size of invasive foci/component. and...surgeon didn,t seem concerned, nor answer on it. Could the invasive foci be the 10mm? I am wondering if I actually should be classified as mia. reason being, I may be worrying and "digging" TOO much on a 1a? Other's thoughts? certain 1a's seem to be 90 plus percent on not coming back, and some stage 1a"s have a much poorer prognosis. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I had an adenocarcinoma 10mmx10mm. acinar predominant, bac features. url (vats) march 23, 2015. No lymph node involvement. was found on early ct scan MYinsistance, general practioner never encouraged ct..I insisted, as I was a heavy former smoker quit 3 years ago. Channel 6 in Milwaukee, WI came to my hair salon about a month ago (June) and did a human interest story on me regarding how ct scans save lives for smoker/former smokers or others at higher risk for lung cancer. It should be airing soon...will let others know on this sight. I am physically doing really well. feel almost 100%, but...emotioanlly? Harder recovery. We have 3 teen girls, and I have a fulfilling busy life. The "what-if's?" are creeping in a lot. what if it comes back? what if I don't live to see grandchildren? etc.etc. I find a hard time finding info on stage 1a, as far as: "You are lucky, now get on with your life." GGrrrrrr!
