Due to my participation in a lung cancer screening program, they found my lung cancer early. I had a lobectomy of RL lobe in May 2015 for 1.2 CM adenocarcinoma, mucinous with no lymph node involvement. I have had no chemo or radiation.
At my first 6 month check up, there is evidence of 2 new .2 CM suspicious nodules in my RU lobe and BAC in LU lobe. The radiologist and thoracic surgeon disagree on the size, growth rate, and if should there be a biopsy. It may or may not be 2.4 CM. This growth was first noted on the April 2013 CT scan. What I have read indicates that BAC should be surgically removed early for a 100% cure. I am ready for surgery but the thoracic surgeon wants to continue watching the growth.
Are there cancer centers in the US that specialize in BAC? I am ready for a second opinion
