Whats the changes of one 5 mm spot on my left lung of being cancer?
I will be 32 years old next month and hate to admit that yes I am a smoker and have been since before I was 18. I have been sick with brincitus for about 2 week and a week ago when I went to the doctor they took a chest xray to rule out phenomena. They gave me shots and meds for my broncitus and sent me home. Four days later, they call me wanting me to come back in for a ct scan. I go and aparently they found that I have a 5mm spot on my left lung also discover I have a hernia?!?! But, my concern is, I am young ans yes maybe a smoker. But it was just one spot. They are sending me to a lung specialist Oct 5th, But, I have to worry and think about it until then. I am already a worry wart and worry about everything. I guess my question is, what is the likely hood of it being cancer. She said that it may just be a small cyst and may not be nothing to worry but she couldn't tell me anything for certain.I am just freaking out a little, I have three children and the youngest is 10months old. Any comments are welcome, and yes, I know I need to stop smoking, that is my goal now, is to stop!!
