Hi, I am new. I have TN breast cancer and have had a lumpectomy of the right breast. I had a X-ray before the sugery and a couple lung nodules showed up. At first they thought they were probably nothing but after doing a pet scan one did light up but not as bright as it could have. I am waiting to see if a doc at MD will biop it, two other docs have already pasted on it saying it is too deep in the chest wall. I am a stage 1 early stage 11 because of the size 2.1cm. I am 56 and pretty worried about the lung thing. I am waiting to start chemo, it has been 6 weeks since the surgery. Has anyone else had a similair experience? What are the chances that the lung nodule is cancer. Lymp nodes were clear, but I know cancer can travel thru your blood stream as well. Thanks for listening and I will be looking forward to your response. Debbie
