Another case of the ugly beast in NSCLC GROUP Posted April 1, 2004 A friend of mine's father has just been diagnosed with extensive adenocarcinoma. I don't really know what this means or what to expect. My mom had sclc, so I primarly focused on that type. I was told that they plan on doing 4 chemo treatments (don't know what kind), then re-scan to see any progress. I was told that this type does not spread, is that true? Can anyone give me any insight on what my friend's father might experience. Thanks!
