I just received a call from my PCP regarding my PET scan. I was diagnosed last week with NSCLC and now I'm being told that I have a large mass in my throat which is impacting my larynx. They said the throat cancer is the primary cancer and the lung cancer is secondary. I was in such a state of shock that I didn't think to ask - does this mean I have two types of cancer or has the throat cancer metastasized to my lung.
Any input anyone can give me might help ease some of my fears until my doctors appointment on Monday.
Thanks and best wishes and thoughts to all.
