Hey folks. I had a CT scan yesterday. My onc. was out today so his nurse called to say, there is no change in the primary tumor size however, the mass has changed density. It has hardened some. Is this good or not? Also there are no new lesions. These were chest pix only. Still on track for surgrery if no traces of this d___ disease are found outside the chest after the third chemo 10/16/03. Can any one comment on the tumor density? Love to you all and God Bless, Dave

Hello, David,

Tumor can be solid, semi-solid, as well as non-solid. I don't know what the implications are for a tumor which appears to be more solid than in previous scans. I do know that I was told that if the tumor is non-solid it cannot be removed in the same way as a solid tumor with well defined margins is removed (wedge resection, segmentectomy, etc.). When my lung was removed earlier this year I had solid, semi-solid, and non-solid tumor, according to previous CT scans.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you that surgery is an option.

Best Wishes,

Fay A.
