I went to recieve an x-ray last week for what I thought was a pulled muscle or phenomia. Turns out I have five tumors. Two on my pleura (lung lining) and a large one on my thymus gland pressing on my heart, and lymthnodes. I went to the oncologist yesterday and they are trying to determine if it is germ cell or squamous. They have advised me it is stage 4 and I may have a year or two to live. I begin chemo in a week. I am only 34 and have a single mom to a 13 year old son. I have not yet accepted the one to two year life span and I am trying my best to stay positive, but can stage 4 be beat?
