Dr. Robinson from Moffitt Cancer Center told me that there was a very high likelihood that if a biopsy were to be performed my lung would collapse. He went on to explain that due to the severity of my condition it would be a life threatening event if this were to happen. He recommended that the nodule be monitored with further CT studies.

  2. Hi Matt, As you've already heard; surgery is a great part of the lung cancer arsenal.

You can find those here. In the meantime please keep us updated and ask any questions that you want. As you can see there are plenty of folks here with broad experience. Lou

    Heather, Welcome to our club and sorry you need to be here. As you've already heard there are more treatments added for Lung Cancer in the past 5 years than in the previous 20 so your husband can have a good chance of overcoming this disease. Surely you'll be hearing from others soon with even longer periods of NED (No Evidence of Disease) since their diagnosis, but in May of this year I will be two years out from my LC (lung cancer) diagnosis and surgery. So, stay strong and let us help you by sharing our experiences. Lou
