    Haven't had to deal with this....had bone mets 8/01. Do know breast cancer most likely metasasis is to BBLL brain, bone, liver and lung. Also know, with my bone mets, its not bone cancer, but breast cancer in the bone. Figure its the same with lung. They tell me that means it is still breast cancer, just in a different place. Probable treatment may include surgery to lung and treatment with chemo, navelbine maybe, which I've heard is not bad. I'm told most people don't even have a lot of hair loss. I have a good friend who had lung cancer, started there, in 1991. She had over 1/2 of lung removed and maybe part of other and is doing very well! Prayers are with you. I hope this has helped. God bless. hummingbyrd
