Update: I'm healing much better and quicker than I thought I could. My pain is minimal, only where the rib was removed. I walked 2 miles yesterday with ease. I'm still on a 5lb lift restriction and of course, no driving. Thanks again for all the prayers, they work!...............PS..........Go get a physical :)

Wow, that's crazy that it was that big. I assume it had been there growing for several years? At what point did you notice it and decide to have it checked out?

I never noticed it. I had a severe allergy attack from pollen. I developed a fever and went to a Doc in a Box to make sure I wasn't coming down with the flu. They listened to my chest and didn't hear any lung function on my left side. This lead to a chest x-ray that showed my left lung was collapsed from a growth. From there further ct scans and a needle biopsy determined how large it was and that it was benign. I has surgery 14 days after discovering it.

Go get a physical!!!

Wow, that’s amazing that it could get that big and you never felt it. I bet you’re going to feel a lot better with 2 lungs working!
