My Dad was diagnosed stage 1b lung cancer in 2010. He had a surgery and remove the cancer in August 2010 and removed ¼ of his lung. The surgery was good. And he had good recovery. However, in August 2011, CT found another cancer in his adrenal gland. The size was 3 cm x 2 cm and there was no other places. Doctor suggest to have another surgery. We are concern if the surgery will affect the spread. Therefore we did not take the surgery immediately at that time. But he is taking some Chinese herbal medicine and he is also changed his food to include many anti-cancer food. In Jan 2012, my dad did another CT, the cancer size becomes 3.9 cm, and still one place. Our question now is:
1. should we continue the non-surgery treatment until we have to do the surgery?
My dad is 70 year old now and in general, he has good health. Thanks for any suggestion
