Denise C Posted July 16, 2019 Share Posted July 16, 2019 My husband had a broncoscopy performed at MSK yesterday afternoon. The Thoracic surgeon said the lymph node she biopsied was suspicious for cancer. She went on to say that she took several other biopsies of other lymph nodes but they did not look suspicious. She then went on to say that he had stage IIIA lung cancer and the treatment would be aggressive chemo followed by the removal of the upper half of his left lung to remove the 1.1 CM nodule located in his left lung. I specifically asked if his cancer was curable and she responded yes. She stated that he can live a normal life with ½ his lung removed and would not require oxygen. We are still waiting on the pathology results to determine type of cancer etc. What questions specifically should I be asking when we meet with the oncologist? Where can I obtain reliable information on stage IIIA lung cancer? I am staying far away from Google but I do want to educate myself on this disease so I am prepared with questions and can also make an informed decision on treatment. Still in shock as my husband is 41 years old is a never smoker and has not been exposed to chemicals that we are aware of. Many thanks, Denise Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
