My mom had a right pnemonectomy for squamous cell cancer (non-small cell) three years ago (after 6 weeks of radiation combined with chemotherapy-Taxol). 2 days shy of her 3rd "birthday" this year, a new primary appeared in her CT scan of left lung. Three weeks ago she had a wedge resection in her left lung -- fortunately the tumor was in the apex of the lung and could be removed. Her lymph nodes tested negative. One odd thing is that her nose is constantly running -- and it seems that this started with either the treatment or the pnemonectomy three years ago. Physically everything is fine -- heart function and all of that, I've tried to do some research but can't come up with anything. Any help would be appreciated.
