mhv79 Posted February 13, 2019 Share Posted February 13, 2019 Hi, My mom, 67 yrs old, was recently diagnosed with 2B/3A lung cancer. She has a 35mm tumor on her left lung with some metastases to the nearby lymph nodes. The biopsy came back and she has adenocarcinoma with some squamous cells. The doctor is giving us two options. Option #1: Give her two rounds of chemo (Carboplatin and Taxol) hoping that the tumor shrinks and then having a lobectomy. Option #2: Going directly for the pulmonectomy. We don't really know what decision to make. Has anyone here had a similar diagnosis? What are the odds of the tumor actually shrinking and being removed? Any input is appreciated.
