Andrea Posted October 8, 2008 Share Posted October 8, 2008 I received the following message from a friend. My gut is maybe it is two primaries. I know not all lung nodules are cancer, but 2cm is suspicous. Any thoughts? Here is what she wrote. Thanks everyone! So I found out a week ago that my dad has colorectal cancer. Dealing with the oncologist was the most frustrating experience for me. The entire approach to treatment is counterintuative to me. There seems to be more unanswered questions than answered. He has 5-6 weeks of chem/rad then they will remove the tumor which depending on who you ask is 3-8 cm. It seems to have perforated the wall but didn't travel, thus making it stage 2. However, they didn't biopsy during the colonoscopy, endoscopy. They said the lymph and liver is fine but there was a 2 cm tumor on the lower part of his left lung. They tried to biopsy but failed. So its unclear if that is related. They "think" its unrelated. Without any data I find that hard to believe. They will do a PET scan this week which should be more informative.
