Hi, my husband Robert was diagnosed with lymphoma in the lungs by CT scan. Oncologists circled the spots on both his lungs. Robert also had enlarged lymph nodes in the windpipe and clusters surrounding the windpipe. A biospy was done by inserting a long needle to the area where the most enlarged lymph nodes are at. Results were inclusive. We just talked with the oncologists staff who tells us that the oncologists wants to do a surgical biopsy by having a cardiovascular surgeon go in and remove a lymph node. We are told that the biopsy will help determine the kind of cancer and the stage it is at. We found out the initial DX on 6/27 and feel like the waiting is worse then actually knowing and treating the monster. Those of you who have been there is this normal to wait on the doctors? We are just full of questions! If you can help, please respond or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
