Ciao Ale, e benvenuto. Parlo un po d'italiano. Ho studiato in Italia, a Lucca , molti anni fa. Ho dimenticaoto molto, sfortunatamente. Cosi, scrivero in inglese!  There is  a forum for EFGR in the forum NSCLC and you might find some helpful information there.  Also, on the main Lungevity website, Lung Cancer 101 has good basic information. The link is https://lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/lung-cancer-101 . Tell us how we can support you.

Grazie, ma non sono su Facebook, sto cercando informazioni sul metastatismo pleurico perché mia madre ha solo questo e probabilmente non funziona;

lei è EGFR + 21 e prende Tarceva dal 6 dicembre, la marcia Tcin ha una remissione parzial ... un'altra domanda: in futuro è possibile un'operazione?

Grazie grazie

Ciao Ale,  It's normal to be afraid when someone you love has cancer!   I don't know if an operation will be possible in the future. Usually operations are only done for small early-stage cancers usually stage 1 but sometimes stage 2. 

Note to other forum members who don't speak Italian: you can easliy get   translations from any language on Google Translate.

Hi, ale,

Welcome to LCSC. My name is Lauren and I'm the Digital Community Manager for LUNGevity Foundation.

I'm glad to see that you've already connected with a few of our members. This community is a great place to find information and support.

LUNGevity's website has information about EGFR and treatment options: https://lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/lung-cancer-101/treatment-options/targeted-therapy 

Here are instructions that may help you translate the website from English to Italian if you use Google Chrome as your web browser. I hope this helps!

With gratitude,

È possibile una remissione completa con il carcinoma polmonare in stadio IV?

Non usiamo il termine di remissione nella comunità del cancro ai polmoni. Speriamo che i risultati del trattamento non presentino evidenza di malattia o NED. Nella malattia di stadio IV, ci sono un certo numero di tumori metastatici. Il trattamento può eliminare questi tumori? Sì.

Tuttavia, dovresti tenere presente che tua madre potrebbe aver complicato le condizioni mediche che influenzano il trattamento. Inoltre, il cancro ai polmoni è persistente e spesso si verifica un numero di cicli di trattamento prima di raggiungere il NED.

Ciò che è ragionevole e molto possibile è che il trattamento prolungherà la vita di tua madre. Per quanto? Nessuno lo sa, ma il miglior consiglio è godersi l'estensione della vita.

Mantenere la rotta.



Welcome ale,

Is a complete remission possible with stage IV lung cancer?

We don’t use the term remission in the lung cancer community. We hope treatment results in no evidence of disease or NED.  In Stage IV disease, there are a number of metastatic tumors. Can treatment eliminate these tumors? Yes.

However, you should be mindful that your mother may have complicating medical conditions that affect treatment.  Moreover, lung cancer is persistent and one often experiences a number of treatment cycles before achieving NED.

What is reasonable and very possible is that treatment will extend your mother’s life. How long? No one knows but the best suggestion is to enjoy the life extension.

Stay the course.
