    Oh No

    My mom is just diagnosed. Stage 1a non-small cell lung cancer. I'd like to know if we should treat or not. Dr. is recommending lung resection. I'd like to know 5 year survival rates with and without treatment for this type of cancer. Unfortunately, I don't know which type of NSCLC it is because we haven't done a biopsy.
