It seems like the cancer is in the T1 vertabrate and the plural lining of the lung and right lung

I think this is consistent with what your profile states that they found previously.

There might be more spine metastasis. (thoracic and lumbar spine as well as the sacrum) up and down the spine

Best bet is to call the Dr with questions and ask for explainations of the tests
