I am a returning customer. 3.5 years ago my dad was diganosis with NSCLC adeno T1N2 M0. I was reading this website and forum in the middle of night for months during treatment. My dad had 4 cycles of chemo, operation of remove left upper lobe and followed by 6 weeks radiation. Now 3 years he has been clear with CT scan. Knowing this websit and forum is a big part of our journey. I don't know how much i appreciate these.
Now one of my friend's dad got SCLC. He had operation and removed left bottom lobe. through the surgery, they said it was SCLC. There was no PET scan done so far.
I don't know much about SCLC, as my previous knowledge is about NSCLC.
My questions is 1. Is PET scan necessiry now to know whether it has spread?
2. Should chemo therapy followed the surgery for SCLC?
3. Is target therapy or immu therapy work for SCLC?
Thanks so much for the support of cancer grace.
