Probably not: Yes, recurrence of lung cancer is unfortunately possible and common. However, presuming you have received appropriate lung cancer care and the appropriate follow-up, your multi-disciplinary cancer team would likely be able to identify a recurrence or new lung cancer. I advise you discuss with your cancer team.

NEED MORE INFORMATIO: May be or may be not. Depends on the diagnosis of cause of spasm in 2010. How was the spasm in 2010 resolved? What did the doctor say in 2010 as the cause of spasm? Any x-ray done in 2010 or now? Any injury in 2010 or now? What is the status of lung cancer now -any surgery, any metastases. Where is the exact location of lung cancer - right or left, upper, middle or lower fields?
