atcrunner Posted May 3, 2019 Share Posted May 3, 2019 (edited) Hello all! April 23rd they found a mass in my wife’s lung (bronchoscopy) that they said was cancer. We met with a thoracic surgeon and he says it looks like a carcinoid tumor and we’ll just cut it out. Pathology came back and confirmed “atypical carcinoid tumor.” So she has a cancer in her lungs, not lung cancer? Went to Emory for a second opinion and another thoracic surgeon confirmed that the standard of care is lobectomy and he would recommend the lower and middle lobe (it’s in the lower right). Now the more we read the more questions we have. Apparently there’s a ki67 score and hers is 30%. Does anyone have any experience with this or any resources we can look at. Trust the surgeons? Meet with oncologist? Find a neuroendocrine specialist? We’re in the Atlanta area. edit: we’re set up for PET scan and pulmonary function test next week Thanks!
