What was your diagnosis like?

What was your lung cancer diagnosis like? Did you have symptoms before your diagnosis?

  1. My diagnosis was terrible 😢. I was just trying to get over my breast cancer and they tell me they see a spot on my lung. This was not a result of the breast cancer it was just a new one. I asked if it could be removed and they said I would have to wait till it grew bigger. As a result in 2018 I had stage 1 small cell lung cancer. I had a vats lobectomy to upper lobe of the lung. I had no treatments. I go every 6 months for ct scan , although I don’t know why but I do as I’m told.
    My only symptom was loss of weight and always pale. I’m glad to be alive and well and I wish for all of you in this forum to hang in there and to remember that cancer is not always a life sentence. 🙏🙏🙏🙏
