I am looking for someone who has had cervical cancer followed by lung cancer. My situation is that I was treated for cervical cancer in 1997 and now have had surgery and treatment for lung cancer. I would like to share experiences with anyone in a similar situation. Doctors can not determine whether mine is a metasteses or a new primary site.

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 1994. It is now 2009 and I have been batteling lung cancer. The Drs don't know if the lung cancer is metastisis or a 2nd primary lung cancer. Has anyone else had this situation.

I was diagnosed and treated in '07 for cervical cancer. All my tests have been fine. Then a couple months ago I had a cough. My family dr did a chest x-ray and found abnormalities. I returned to the cancer center and was diagnosed with lung cancer. Since the nodules are too small they cannot biopsy them so I am being treated with cisplatin and topotekan for 3 days in a row every 3 weeks.
I've no idea if it is metastatic or a new cancer but I'm fighting it with everything I have and will continue until they tell me I'm dead.

This is common metastatic site. The good news is that it can be easily treated. Mine was found less than 2 years after cervical cancer treatment of chemo/radiation. Small tumor was removed quickly, apparently no need for chemo. 4 weeks after lung surgery I am feeling pretty good. But expect to be closely monitored for the rest of my life.
