    Update on testing

    Hi, I posted last week regarding testing they are doing to see if I have Lymphoma. I would like to thank everyone who answered back, it really put me at ease. I had a bronchoscopy and just found out they were not able to determine if it is cancer. Just found out the results yesterday. I go see a theoratic oncologist surgeon tomorrow to talk about the surgery. Hopefully they will be able to confirm with that procedure. So, still no answers and it's still very hard not knowing. I am trying to carry on with my daily routine but I do have to say it's not easy. I will update once again, and thank you to all for being here for support!! I hope I am posting in the right area, I am very new to this.
    Everyone have a nice chilled evening,

      Janet..until they say the big C just put it out of your mind..it really could be anything..

      I was put under twice in one week with a huge incision across my throat. Quacks at Northwestern in Chicago..real quacks.

      Other cancer facilities do it from the side..I have a huge permanent scar right across my throat.

      there seems to be a big break through in types of cancer and targeted treatment...I don't understand it and if anyone can give more information on how this affects lung cancer...I would appreciate it...my first round of chemo gave me maybe 6 months of peace but I am back into pain and suffering and have just heard that my results from the new testing will result in a change to a pill for treatment

      Go the the cancer commons site..Bonnie j. ADario site..Lungevity..All have important information about lung cancer..The best source is your Oncologist who should only be one who is an absolute expert in L.C. because it's so complex.
