My sister-in-law was diagnosed 10 years ago with stage 4 adenocarcinoma, with what now would be considered oligiomestastic disease. She had 6 rounds of Cisplatin/Alimta/Avastin followed by approximately 4 years of maintenance chemo (Alimta/Avastin). About 6 years ago they did a lobectomy. Her scans have been clear until a few weeks ago when they saw a 2.1 cm nodule and some ground glass opacity. She is now awaiting biopsy results. Further complicating things is she was diagnosed with scleroderma soon after she completed her cancer treatment, which the doctor thinks might have been caused by the chemo. Assuming the biopsy shows cancer how will her scleroderma affect her treatment for the cancer?
