    Hello Sandy. I just started radiation for lung cancer and am going to begin chemo with taxol and carboplatin. I have a tumor in my right lung upper lobe that is causing bleeding in my lung. I found you on here and because of the closeness in age and recent diagnosis, I would like to follow your posts.

      Was first diagnosed as metastasized melanoma but after a second broncoscopy, I have non small cell lung cancer.

    Oh No (Misdiagnosed): Cancer is not melanoma but is lung cancer non small cell.

      To answer your question, my oncologist told be that he believed with all his being that he was looking at cancer before the first biopsy, when the results came back negative, he didn't for a second believe it and had me undergo surgery to get a bigger and better biopsy, he sent it to three different pathologists. He was absolutely correct as all three of the second biopsies came back positive.
