      Good luck, Steve.

      My dad had cancer in both his liver and lungs, but they turned out to be two different types of cancer. The lung cancer was a non-small cell, and a secondary liver cancer came from the pancreas.

      My Mom has cholangiocarcinoma and also has nodules in her lungs, one was active on a PET done in late December 2011, but after chemo it was not active in May. The radiologist noted that the cancer seen in her lung in December might be primary to the lung. D

      Yes Steve.
      I am here on behalf of my sister. She is not on this site yet. (This is all pretty new for us.) She was just diagnosed with primary liver cancer; has spread to ovary, abdomen and lungs.

      I had a 15lbs. tumor removed for my liver in Oct. They took out 5 nodules in my lung and 1 had cancer in it. I started Nexavar in Feb. I have 15 more nodules left in my lungs. They dont know if there is cancer in them or not. I take the nexavar just in case. My scans show no growth or new nodules. Iv cut my dose of nexavar in half to two pills a day. Right now Im taking a month off from treatment with the dr's blessing.

      Yes, it appears so. I just posted to my timeline that our daughter will be going in for surgery to remove a 5mm nodule in her lungs. The surgery will be exactly six months since she had liver resection surgery (70% removed). She was diagnosed with primary liver cancer in July of 2011. Her doctors indicated that it is somewhat common for liver cancer to spread to the lungs. We won't know for sure until they perform a biopsy of the nodule after the surgery.

      Best to you.
