I'm a 64 year old female that was diagnosed with NSCL stage 1b with left upper lobectomy followed with chemotherapy in 1999. In 2006 several GGO's appeared in upper, mid and lower right lung which I was advised to do the "wait and watch" theory because I was probably dealing with BAC which is slow growing. Middle right GGO continued to grow from 7mm in 2206 to 15mm in 2012. Finally made decision to have VATS wedge resection on upper and mid right lung November 2012. Pathology report revealed stage 1A multifocal invasive NSCL adenocarcinoma with no lymph node involvement and no BAC features. Oncologist does not advise any further treatment at this time, but follow up visits every 3 to 4 months. I have been told recent diagnosis is a secondary cancer possibly related to first, but no one can say for sure. Are there any recommendations you could give me to be proactive with this diagnosis?
