Living with Lung Cancer / Re: favorite uncle diagnosed with lung cancer

My uncle is going home today. The lung mass was confirmed as cancerous, but as far as the scans can tell it has all been removed. Everything around the mass appears to be clear of cancer. Sees oncologist in 6 weeks. About the best we could have hoped for.

My uncle saw the oncologist today. He has to make an appointment in 6 weeks where they will take scans, x-rays and blood work. The oncologist said the surgeon got the cancer out of his lung during surgery so he may not have to do any followup treatments. Fingers crossed!!!!!!

Hi All.

New here. Figured I'd join to see what I can learn to help my uncle. He had a heart attack last week and while they were running tests discovered a suspicious nodule on his lung. He has since undergone successfully triple bypass surgery. While doing the surgery, they took a biopsy of his lung. Doctor said it looked to be cancer. Doctor also said he thought it would not require surgey but chemo would be needed.

I've had a lot of bad experiences with one type of doctor trying to explain options for a another type of problem or disease so I took it all with a grain of salt.

So my first question is what should my uncle do next? See an oncologist? What kind? he's in California if that matters.
