I posted around 18 months ago regarding a very small nodule. As thought, the nodule didn’t grow and was therefore benign and unconnected with the symptoms I had been experiencing in 2014,2015. Earlier this year I thought that maybe some sort of malabsorption was at play and could explain the symptoms, my main concern was an underlying malignancy. Change of diet didn’t help and my doctor explained that it would be something I needed to learn to live with. Three weeks ago I felt very under par and I had a CT scan which showed a suspicious lymph node between my lungs and a spot on my liver. Just prior to this I had a lung function test which was normal. Further testing showed small cell lung cancer in the node. I see my oncologist next week where we will talk about a treatment plan. Given that I have been suffering with this for over three years I was wondering if conventional chemo therapy would be optimum as I thought this would be targeting rapidly dividing cells. Is there any information on what the response might be to chemotherapy when it looks like the tumor is not growing rapidly? Surgery has been ruled out. Is there a more appropriate treatment out there for cases like this? I have had a search of all the resources I know and just can’t find more information.
I would be very grateful for any information that you might add.
