A CT scan has just shown a 6mm fissural nodule in my lung. Three months previous to this there was no nodule on a scan. Over the last 2 years I have had 4 scans which did not show this nodule, I am confident it is a new finding.
From what I know, 6mm would be too small to biopsy. It would seem that the standard is to rescan after a period of time. My concern is that zero to 6mm represents rapid growth and a 6 month, or even three month follow up might be inappropriate.
Is there any protocol for this type of scenario?
I have been suffering from extreme tiredness and some muscle loss.
