I am new to this discussion board although not new to this site. Last year my husband had colon cancer. He had surgery, chemo and radiation. He seems to be doing well in that respect but they have now found a spot on his lung. The doctor does not seem to think it metasticised from the colon because that doesn't happen very often. The doctor is concerned that this is bronchoalveolar (sp) which is a slow growing cancer. This type of cancer does not always light up on the pet scan. He is being referred to a thoracic surgeon. Can anyone tell me anything about this type of cancer.
