My partner has been getting pneumonia/bronchitis for about six years now. There were nodes last time, but they went away. Now they are back and today we found out that they grew al little. The doctor is sending her to Roswell Park Cancer Institute because he doesn't want to have her wait until the end of Janurary, to see a lung doctor. She may now have bronchitis as well. She does have bad sinuses. She we be worried right now? I have been balling my eyes out since the doctors office, but she doesn't seem to be reacting. Is there any other condition that could cause that besides lung cancer? Any information would be great.View Thread
That's exactly how I was. Thankfully, her doctor at Roswell Park Cancer Institute told us that her nodules are from an infection. She did have pneumonia and bronchitis beforehand. Has your man had any infections lately? Like a cold, sinus issues, etc.View Thread
I know how you feel. My partner has some nodes in her right lung. There was one that was discovered a couple of years ago, but that one went away. She seems to get pneumonia/bronchitis every year too. These have grown as well now, but they aren't telling her what size they are, so we're assuming that they are really small. She thinks its related to Rheumatoid Arthritis, since that runs in her family. Yet, lung cancer doesn't, she doesn't smoke, she's 39 years old and she works in a hospital. I'm freaking out here, because she is the only thing that I have in my life and I'm afraid to be alone.View Thread
