    My cancer started in my lung--metastisized to my liver. It is treatable---not cureable.

      My husband has carcinoid syndrome. His cancer also started in his lung - they are currently trying to find a cause, since all tests (CT, PET, Octreotide, 5HIAA, etc.) are coming back as normal. Oncologist has suggested radiation, possibly chemo as a prophylactic.
