nimo956 Posted April 15, 2017 Share Posted April 15, 2017 My father has recently been diagnosed with a 3cm adenocarcinoma in his lung. On its own, this would be right on the border between stage 1a and 1b I believe. However, his PET scan showed a possible 13mm metastasis on his rib. We had it biopsied and I received an email with the results before being able to speak to his oncologist. We were supposed to meet this week, but he had to reschedule since not all of the stains were finished, and he wanted a radiation oncologist to join us as well. The results say that the metastasis is cancer, but the primary source is the prostate and not the lung. Does this mean he has both lung and prostate cancer? I'd really like to know if it's more treatable to have stage 1a lung cancer and stage 4 prostate cancer as opposed to just stage 4 lung cancer (supposedly prostate cancer is very treatable?). I'm going a bit stir crazy since it's a long weekend, and we won't be able to speak to a doctor until Tuesday at the earliest. Does anyone know what questions I should ask the oncologist?
