My Wife was recently complaining of a nagging cough that lasted for a couple months she went to her PC doctor and they ordered a lung x ray that showed a spot, they then ordered a CT scan that showed the 7.2 CM lung mass , in the CT report it says it was ill defined and that it was suspicious for tumor invasion into the mediastinum and also possibly invading the chest wall and the top right rib, the report also notes several lymph nodes but only says that they all measure less the 1CM. So far these are the only two tests she has done , she is scheduled for a PET scan and a biopsy in the next few days.
My Wife is 48 years old a lifetime NON smoker who otherwise is in great health, went to the gym 5 days a week up until this started.
I have a few questions, from what I've read online because of the size of her mass if it does turn out to be cancer that it most likely is not stage 1 or even stage 2 is this correct?
At this point in the process is it possible that it could be something else , like a fungal or other type of infection ? I never knew that bathroom mold could harm you until this happened and I started looking online, we've lived in our house for 19 years and have had a terrible mold problem in our master bedroom bathroom for the whole 19 years, black mold covering the ceiling and about half the walls.
