My husband was diagnosed two months ago with lung cancer. Lately his equalibrium has been off so a brain scan was done. A small spot was found on his brain. Now, his vision is blurry. No treatment has been started as of yet due to the fact he just got in to see a cancer doctor and he wants to consult with a nuerologist about the spot on the brain. My husband seems to think he's in the early stages because the spots are small. We know the one on his left lung is approx. 2cm. We don't know the exact size of the one on his brain other than it's small. I know from everything I am reading without being told; this sounds like stage IV. Can someone please give me some insight on prognosis or for better words, your experience with the information I have provided. My husband is incarcerated and it took them four months to get a biopsy done after learning of the spot on his lung. Please help! Unfortunately, in my situation, I won't be able to find out no more than he wants to tell me. Additionally, he isn't wanting to hear any negative talk so therefore, he won't even discuss the possiblities.
