CT showed white spots on lungs, bhroncoscopy showed no cancer but they want to look further to make sure. I'm 71 yr old female and wonder if this invasive open lung biopsy is worth the risk. What is the risk when they make small incision through rib and take sample? I am terrified about this and wonder what the mortality rate is. I've heard scare stories about pneumonia after, etc. They put a tube in after to let air out. I need advice ASAP as I am scheduled next week for this.
