My best buddy has just been diagnosed. We're still waiting on biopsy results, but the doctor is positive it's cancer. 3cm by 2cm mass in the left lung and a mass that looks like lymph node involvement (on the same side of the body), which is trying to wrap around the windpipe!!! I'm more worried about this tumor than the one in the lung! He isn't a candidate for surgery because of his age and because he already has COPD. Has anyone had windpipe involvement? How did you fare? The doctor says he wants to wait until after the biopsy to determine what options we have. My buddy means the world to me and if there's any hope at all, I need to hear about it.
