HI Merilee,

HI Merilee,

I'm so sorry you're having these problems. Unfortunately it is possible these nodules represent cancer that wasn't able to be seen initially. But that isn't known yet and your oncologist wants to keep a close eye on the situation. If it is cancer then it can be treated and in most cases can be held in tact for a long time. The goal for nsclc that is recurred is to treat it as a long term illness. But I hope it isn't and just a scare in an otherwise happy journey.
