my mum has just had tests becuase she has been ill for a while, lost lots of weight ect... and a scan has revealed a shadow at the bottom of her lung.
the doctors have provisionally warned her that it could be lung cancer, but explained that it looks at a real early stage so may be treatable. they want to obviously investigate further, and have explained to my mum some options, including taking away the affecting part of the lung, they claim that this procedure is quite successful and only defect will be reduced lung capacity,that is if they can get to the cancer before it spreads elswhere.
has anyone else been through or has had a family member go through this procedure? any advice welcome
(both my mums parents died of lung cancer, all smoked-is this a genetic defect we all carry, should me and my sister go for checks, we both do not smoke?)
Yes, you and your sister should have regular checkups starting immediately. Help your mum keep a positive attitude. It means so much. I'm praying for her and your family. This is a tough thing and it's one step at a time. Blessings, bybee
