non-calcified lung nodule
I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2007. Completed 6 months chemo and no evidence of recurrance.
Had a ct scan 6 months after chemo and a 3mm non-calcified lung nodule appeared on ct scan. Docotors said we will watch this every 6 months. It has shrunk to 2mm without any type of treatment involved.
Doctor feels this is only scar tissue or toxicity from chemotherapy. Can this be true? Should I have this biopsied? Does cancer shrink on its own? My cea is 0 and all other tests, scans show no evidence of colon cancer anywhere.

I had the same diagnosis and treatment in 2008. You have to trust your oncologist in matters like this. If you want a second opinion, perhaps another doctor's appt is worth trying?

Good luck!
