  1. Charlie, Welcome here. As Curt states, if 8 cm, it is indeed a large tumor and I'd be inclined to have it biopsied. There are some misconceptions about lung cancer involving surgery and or biopsy. The most common is exposing the tumor to oxygen will cause it to grow out of control. I know of no case where a surgical procedure or any type of biopsy caused a tumor or nodule to morph into something more dangerous. If he nodule is lung cancer, it is already dangerous enough. The biopsy will identify the type of cancer (if in fact it is cancer) and knowing the type is essential to starting treatment. Here is a good introduction to lung cancer that ought to provide more information. Stay the course. Tom
