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.

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.

What do the symptoms of pancoast tumour feel like in real life?

Hi, 

I've trawled through the website and seen many concerned threads of people who thought they had Pancoast cancer.

I was just wondering what the symptoms are in real life?

E.g. With the shoulder pain/upper back pain cause by Pancoast, are there spots in the back that ache like trigger points or is there no pain in the muscles at all?

When diagnosed with Horner syndrome, did you have all of the symptoms of drooping eyelids, smaller pupils and lack of sweat or was it only a smaller pupil for instance?
