My husband Kent diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer in right lobes. He had 2 lobes removed in 2012?? He went through chemo. One year later he has been diagnosed with a masastised tumor in left lung. Going to Duke to look at our options. Any advise? Thanks

Keep your hopes up. I am a survivor since 1997 Stage B. I have a friend who also had a lobe on the right removed then in a few years it was on the left , she had a lobe removed and is doing fine years later.

Keep up posted,

I would advise to definitely have tumor tested for molecular markers. There are some great targeted treatments out there that are working wonders. You're going to a great facility and looks like you are being monitored closely.

Reach out to others and don't forget to get support for you too. We are here if you need us and please post an update soon.

There is also the LifeLine Support program where we match you with a support or caregiver mentor for one on one support. www.lungevity.org/lifeline

My hopes and best thoughts are with you and your husband.
