DeanCarl Posted October 22, 2003 Share Posted October 22, 2003 Which is: Squamous Cell Carsinoma (malignant). Stage IIIa. Mets to lymph nodes in and around RT lung. Tumor blocking airway to RT lung. Partialy colapsed RT lung. I got a look at the tumor when they did the bronchoscopy last week. It's pretty big. A LOT bigger than 5cm. A note: The doc could NOT guarante there wasn't some microscopic spreading to other areas that, as of yet, were too small to pick up. I'll be getting options from my treatment team tomarrow morning and deciding on where to go from here. No real suprizes here. I just now have a name to put to what's growing inside my body. (hmmm... Think I'll name it "Alphonse" ) (I hope my sense of humor doesn't offend anybody here. I've been accused of being a bit on the "sick" side ... which is true, but it's gotten me through a lot of rough times in the past.) Anyway, another step on this journey I'm on. (rather reluctantly, I might add ) Dean Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
