Together we will beat cancer


Lung Cancer

I was told I had a tumour in both lungs 8 weeks ago. Two ct scans later and consultant wants to see me tomorrow to discuss a ct scan done two days ago. I am very worried. Scared. I have been putting a brave face on but today that face has disappeared. The next stage will be biopsies. Any questions I should ask while there as I will be in shock if it’s a cancer diagnosis.

I'm sorry to read that you have a tumour in both your lungs Ronnie.

I saw that you're wanting to know what questions to ask tomorrow so I just wanted to give you our cancer nurses telephone number as they may be able to help. They're available between 9a.m - 5p.m on 0808 800 4040 (freephone) so if you have time before your appointment do give them a call as they'll do all they can to advise you on this situation.

Many members have found having a pen and paper to hand to keep a note of the questions and answers to be really helpful so it may be worth considering taking these with you.

I hope your appointment goes well Ronnie. We'll be thinking of you and hoping for the best.

Kind regards,
