Kathleen1 Posted May 10, 2007 Share Posted May 10, 2007 My sister recently had a biopsy and it was found she has lung cancer. They removed the upper portion of her right lung and told her no chemo, no radiation. It had not spread to the lymph nodes. We lost my Mother in August 06 to NSCLC. My question is, that my doctor wants to know for my medical records what kind of lung cancer my sister has. I have asked my sister a few times and she doesn't seem to want to tell me...all she will say is that it was the non smokers kind............. I'm sorry but we all know you do not have to be a smoker to get lung cancer.... I am assuming it was not SCLC because they said it was slow growing. Anyone have any suggestions? Am I to assume then that it is Adeno.....? Sorry to be so dumb, but this is all very scary - two primary relatives having lung cancer in such a short time period. I don't want to ask her again and I don't know why she won't tell me other than she just wants to move on now that she is past her surgery. She has been very closed about the whole thing and would not allow family to be there for her during the surgery. I am grateful they found hers early, but still very concerned.
