    Small cell lung cancer

    Just diagnosed with my third primary - small cell lung cancer with mets to left hip bone - am having a brain mri to determine if mets to brain - if already mets to bone, does it necessarily follow that there will be mets to brain? and, if so, anyone have any experience?

      My small cell lung cancer metastased to multiple bones, ribs, spine, hips and liver. A few lymph nodes showed some activity also, but never went to my brain. Last MRI and PET scan were all clear. Dr is going to have me meet with radiology oncologist to decide to be preemptive and do some low dose radiology on my brain and mass in my lung. Best of luck on your MRI!

      No it does not..As far as Lung cancer goes its amazing how many people have had radiation to mets and those mets have not come back or spread. SBRT, IMRT cand be very very effective.

      I am sorry for your cancer journey..Three times is really difficult. Have you considered mutation testing?
