I was found a couple weeks ago to have 5 lesions in my brain that are adenocarcinoma. 3 were surgically excised and 2 biopsied. There haven't been any other tumors in my chest at all, or anywhere else, which is a bit confusing to me. I am a 49 year old female, smoker, with no COPD or lung deficiency ever. Tumors were found due to headache. I am still in the process of "meeting my team", but the concensus so far is stereotactic radiation (possibly gamma kinfe) followed by whole brain radiation. I have not been able to find any information on patients with brain mets but no disease found elsewhere, so most information I do find doesn't seem to apply to me. I would appreciate any link or data for a situation like mine!
Thank you in advance
