Another clear CT scan

Blog Post created by Strudel on May 29, 2020

As many here know, I was diagnosed with lung cancer last February and had the right lower lobe of my lung removed in March. Thank God - and this site - it was Stage 1 and treatable by surgery alone. I say thank you to this site because not only did the support here help me quit smoking almost 10 years ago, it also gave me the knowledge to know I should have a low dose CT lung scan to screen for cancer. I had no symptoms and it was the screening that led to the discovery of the cancer. Early diagnosis is so important - by the time you have symptoms, it is often sadly too late. 

Since the surgery, I have had another CT scan every 6 months to check for any recurrence of cancer. The one in November was clear, as was the one this week. Hooray! So, I just wanted to say “thank you” again to the wonderful site!
