Sue S Posted October 9, 2003 Share Posted October 9, 2003 My mom was diagnosed with stage IIIB squamous cell in July2003. She has already had 4 treatments of chemo and will start the chemo/radiation therapy Oct 20th. Today was her radiation simulation. After we got home from the hospital, she mentioned she had three sites noted for rad treatment. One was located in the area that her tumor was discovered (upper right lung), but the other two were down below her belly button, it appeared to be at the bottom of each lung. I did not have a chance to ask the doctors about it, because I did not know then. But, here's my question....are these 2 bottom locations "normal" site locations for a tumor in the upper lung (or mediastinum, where it has also grown), or would it appear that there might be two other locations of tumors? I will ask the rad oncologist this question at the next visit, but until then...does anyone have any thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
