I HAD A BIOPSY B4 TREATMENT WHERE I WAS TOLD SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER, THEN A CT SHOWED LIVER LESION, WAS TOLD IF IT IT WENT AWAY AFTER A TREATMENT IT WAS CANCER MESTAZIED WELL IT WAS CANCER AS WELL. IM NON OPERABLE AND CANT GET RADIAION BECAUSE IT GOT MY LIVER, IM CONFUSED AS TO WHY BUT NOW MARCH ITS GONE ON CT AND MRI ON BRAIN IS CLEAR SO IN APRIL I START RADIATION TO KEEP IT FROM HE SAYS EVER GETTING TO MY BRAIN.
