We are Macmillan. Cancer Support
i have been diagnosed with lung cancer in the left lung 3 weeks ago and so far I have had an xray, CT scan bronchoscopy and biopsy taken and finally a PET scan. Today I see the respitatory team and have been told the tumour is 2.99cm in diameter, I will be seeing the thorasic surgeon to discuss possibly having it surgically removed. The only issue is it seems to be very near to my pumonary artery. If it is inoperable then I will recieve upto 5 wks daily radical radiotherapy. So thats me! I am 53 years of age and stopped smoking 17th Dec 2012.
tomorrow wednesday i go into hopsital to have the tumour and either top half of lung or whole lung removed as precauition...has anyone else had the lung removed if so what happens next? how will i feel? will i cope with one lung?
