  1. Hello, What the doctor said after an appointment? Are you not clear with stages of lung cancer? The cancer is located only in the lungs and has not spread to any lymph nodes in stage I, when the cancer is in the lung and nearby lymph nodes in stage II, where cancer is found in the lung and in the lymph nodes in the middle of the chest, also described as locally advanced disease stage III.
  2. Options for surgery include the following, depending upon the size and position of the tumor in the chest: Lobectomy, which involves removal of one lobe of the lung. Segmentectomy (the removal of an anatomical division of one lobe) or wedge resection (the removal of a non-anatomically defined area of lung around the tumor) may be considered in some patients with a small tumor of 2 cm or smaller. This form of surgery may also be favored for some people who could not tolerate conventional lobectomy. This might happen in a person whose lungs do not work well.

  13. A lobectomy is the surgical removal of a lobe of an organ. It most often refers to the removal of a section of a lung. It may also refer to the liver, brain, thyroid gland, and other organs.
  14. My sister uses wedge pillow, Gravity can work against you when you lie on your back in the supine position. It may collapse your upper airway or lungs as the weight of your neck and abdomen shift. This may lead to interruption in breathing during sleep called apnea. This really helpful.
