My husband had a large Tumor removed from his right lung. The doctor removed the center lobe and part of the lower lobe. After all testing was complete they determined it had not spread to lymph nodes. It was an atypical carcinoid tumor and he was told chemo was advised but there was no data to support the chemo would have any impact on this type of cancer. He was feeling better after the surgery but developed a hiatal hernia and now has problems eating without feeling pain in the center of his chest above the stomach.
Has anyone had any experience with kind of tumor?
