catlady91 Posted September 10, 2020 Share Posted September 10, 2020 My mum was diagnosed with inoperable stage 3B squamous cell non small cell lung cancer in February. She's doing incredibly well and there's barely anything of her tumour left; it's gone from 37mm to 3mm. The doctor said that it's very hard to see with the naked eye. The doctor said that her response to treatment has been excellent. I was wondering if surgery could ever be an option for my mum. Is the tumor too small to remove or the location? The doctor seems to think that immunotherapy will get rid of the tiny remaining part. If the cancer God forbid comes back, could surgery be an option? Also just a question about lymph nodes. Is chemo or radiation used to get the cancer out of the lymph nodes? I don't know how it quite works. My mum originally had N2 for lymph node involvement. The doctor hasn't mentioned anything about that. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
