My wife’s pathology report is confusing.

My wife had a needle biopsy done for a 1.6 cm nodle in her left, lower lung. The report says “Well differentiated adenocarcinoma, predominantly acinar and focally lepidic.” Does anyone know what this means?

My grandmother was diagnosed with lung cancer. Please help me.

My grandmother was diagnosed with lung cancer. It came as a chock to everyone. She was only in her early 70’s when the verdict came. Can any of you that have or had lung cancer answer my questions, so that I can understand her situation better?
 

  1. What symptoms did you have before you went to the hospital for the first time?
  2. Which treatments did you take or are taking?
  3. What has been your biggest challenge or frustration with lung cancer?

Discouraged with residual chemo/radiation effects

After a very successful hip replacement last summer -- with a clean pre-op X-ray - I was ready to get back to riding my horses when I developed an annoying cough. After firing a few doctors a great nurse practitioner led me to my diagnosis of limited small cell lung cancer with a tumor wrapped around my right main stem bronchus. A biopsy confirmed the diagnosis but the next day I was in the ER unable to breathe. Stayed in for a week, was fast tracked into aggressive chemo then concurrent twice a day lung radiation.

My wife was just diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma in her lungs.

A recent CT scan showed that my wife had multiple ground glass nodules and opacities (GGO’s) in both lungs. They did a needle biopsy Wednesday and her doctor just told her she has Adenocarcinoma. Further testing will be necessary to determine if it is in both lungs, but since the GGO’s are in both lung my wife is certain she had cancer in both lungs. The doctor told her that if this is the case then she is in the advanced stage of cancer. She is now making an appointment with an oncologist, but needless to say she is devastated and believes she is going to die.

35 ground glass nodules and opacities in all lobes

My wife is having a needle biopsy of a 1.6 cm ggo in a week and is totally scared she has lung cancer. Yet, the nodules are not solid. They are what are called ground glass opacities  Have any of you have this, or does anyone have information about these?

Stage IV NSCLC Adenocarcinoma with ALK genetic mutation

My sister-in-law has been diagnosed with cancer. She is 53 years old. It is Stage IV NSCLC Adenocarnioma. She had the genetic mutation ALK. She started on Xalkori last Thursday. I am looking for resources if any on the ALK genetic mutation. We have searched online and at a few local resources. Just wondering if anyone else on here has any suggestions or resources they could suggest?

Thank you,

Keri

Stage IV lung cancer - paraneoplastic limbic enciphilitis

My mum has been diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer which has spread to the brain resulting in paraneoplastic limbic enciphilitis.

According to her oncologist, chemo is not an option for her and is suggesting Tarceva even before the result of EGFR mutation and PET Scan....  

I'm waiting for full medical report to get 2/3/4 opinions.

Just me and my mum after we lost my younger brother less than 2 years ago, my father before that and my eldest brother too. its like one after another. i feel so alone, scared, loss. I'm trying so hard to stay positive

What should we expect?

I wanted to search the archives for the answers I need, but I am so pressed for any time right now, I'm just going to ask for myself. Sorry.

My father has stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer. It's a recent diagnosis. Figured out he had lung cancer, and before any treatment was started, figured out it has spread some to his brain, hence stage 4. He's undergoing radiation treatment daily on his brain now - done 8 treatments so far out of 12 planned.

Pain after a lobectomy

I had surgery on March 2nd 2016 I had my upper right lobe and lymph nodes removed. I had stage 1 Adocarcinoma  my pulmonary specialist says it was most likely caused from the RA meds ( Biologics ) I have taken for years. I am very fortunate they were able to get it all and I won't need chemo or radiation. They went through my back to do my lobectomy,  I still have quite a bit of pain just curious how long some of the pain last.
