Last July I was diagnosed with sclc. Went through the chemo; did the radiation, to include PCI. Scans looked good. Then a few weeks ago I started coughing a lot which led to a ct scan....there were some irregularities. Had a pet scan last week that showed 3 lesions. The radiologist and pulmonologist are confident its cancer, but my onc wants me to have a biopsy. This will probably happen later this week or monday.

I just found this website today and have read some uplifting stories, and damn do I need some of those now. I am also hoping to find ideas on different treatments so I can be as informed as possible as to the the different options when I next speak with my onc. I will post over in the sclc forum for that though.
