On 10-14-11 my father was taken to the hospital for fluid around his heart and lungs. After multiple scans 3 masses 4cm in the right 3cm in the left lung were found. My dad has suffered from COPD and chronic enpa. for almost the last 1o years. At that point the doctors said" we cannot tell for sure but we have never seen masses like these in that location not be cancer". Because of the COPD it would be very dangerous to preform a biop. He is already showing some signs of dying, talking to his mother and father who have been dead for 20 years, seeing a bunch of people outside, seeing friends he hasnt seen in my life time (23 years). To put it bluntly he was sent home to die, no treatment. I have a few q's?
-Can you determine the "speed" of the cancer given our situation ?
