rinksgal Posted July 12, 2003 Share Posted July 12, 2003 Can someone tell me what stage my s/o is in now... We don't see the oncologist until wednesday.... He was a stage 1B T2N0M0 they removed his upper rt. lobe in May, but now his cancer is in the lymph nodes in the meiastinum area they said... this showed up in a pet scan he had 2 days ago... (SVU max of 10.4g/ml) He was a T2 because of the size of the tumor 4.5 cm. adenocarcinoma poorly differentiated..... what I don't understand is this is about 6 weeks or so after surgery and now its already in his lymph nodes...Shouldn't these after been removed during surgery of the orginal tumor??I don't get it? So does this mean he has mets or is that only if it gets into another area, like liver, brain, bones etcs....??? Does this make him go from a 1b to 3a or b it doesnt make him a stage 4 does it??? Can someone please answer this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
