Worried I have pancoast tumor.

Hello. I am here to see if anyone can share symptoms of pancoast. And if you can, please, answer some questions. My story: About a month-ish ago, I all of a sudden got this aching pain in my right shoulder blade. It was annoying, and bothersome. It would come and go, and a variety of pain levels, and woke me up at night. In the meantime before this, I felt something "Off" with my throat when I swallowed, like it felt as if "Something" was there. Then I would burp. Very unusual for me. So I have this "Off" feeling in my throat, and now this pain in my right shoulder blade.

HPV transmission risk

This is regarding french kissing for about 5 min.

The woman had radiation for cervical cancer at 20, and a hysterectomy for reoccurance, recently at 35.
She said the cancer tested positive for all 13 high risk strains. The 15 year reoccurance tells me that she never cleared the virus. I have read that approximately 33% of women with cervical hpv, also have it orally.

I am now panicked that the chances of contracting oral hpv that may lead to head and neck cancer are astronomically high for me. My great grandmother died of throat cancer.

T790M finally detected

Patient diagnosed with NSCLC EGFR+ Exon 19Del and treated with Erlotinib 150mg for 10 months until progression. Liquid biopsy was T790M negative and the subsequent tissue biopsy was 790M negative as well. Carboplatin Pemetrexed chemo for 4 cycles and progression detected and liquid biopsy was T790M negative as well. Docetaxel for 4 cycles and disease progression continued. Liquid NGS ordered and T790M (less than 1% SNV) detected along with PIK3CA and TP53. Patient started on Tagrisso 80mg on March 1, 2022. Any insight as to why to took so long for 790M to show up?

how much of a threat is this

Hi! I recently had an xray for pain to my R rib (after helping someone move). Came back contusion but found a 1cm nodular density projecting over the L lower lung fields. CT of chest in 2011 detected nothing on L but 6mm on R. Lung screening 2014 detected 4 to 5 mm on R and a new 3 to 4 mm on lower L. So if it is the same nodule lower L grew from 3 to 4 mm to 1 cm over 7 years. I am scheduled for follow up CT in 9 days. My dilemma is #1 that I am worried about this growth and #2 that I am scheduled to leave for Puerto Vallarta for 2.5 weeks.

Am I too late for surgery?

AfterCT, tissue biopsy and pet scan, I was diagnosed as stage 1 b lung non small adenocacinoma, exon19 deletion EGFR mutation and TP53 mutation. When the surgeon opened up, she found a few drops on my same side lung plural, so she closed up and did not perused the surgery we planned and told me it is stage 4 and I can not have surgery any more. I was really disappointed! but my most recent blood liquid biopsy shows that There is no detected blood cancer cell or any mutations in my blood.

Partial Progression

When there is evidence of successful therapy of EGFR with TKI in one area of the lung but suggestion of progression in another area, what is the next best diagnostic path? My impression is that this scenario would yield probabilities we could test, such as the likely nature of the second mechanism.Is it not true that progression is most likely a global failure of the first TKI therapy?
