    Yes Nevets. I had a bulky tumor on/in my lung. It measured 13 cm when it was first found in a ct scan. It was also found to be touching on my windpipe and the weight of it was pressing on my aorta as well.. In short I had stage 2 hd bulky disease. I had 6 mo of chemo and 20 days (4 weeks) of radiation. My story is out there on the Personal webpages hd section if you want more detail. (username Racht) How can I be of help to you?

    I had a bulky mass in my chest - don't know exactly how big it was, but i was stage IIBX - (x means bulky)

    I went through 12 weeks of stanford V treatment, and the tumor began to shrink immediately. I then went for 25 radiation treatments following chemo.

    I have been cancer free for almost 1.5 years and i now have another lil child - :) i check this site about once a week, so feel free to PM me on the site with questions.
