My 68 year old mother in law was recently diagnosed with Stage IV NSCLC. She has a 4 mm tumor in her right upper lobe and, as of now, only ONE solidary metastasis to the sternum, which is categorized as a hyper metabolic subtle sclerotic lesion on the PET scan. My mother in law is very healthy and active for her age. She has always eaten healthy and, up until diagnosis, did zoomba and yoga weekly. She is interested in aggressive curative care (reaching NED status) over palliative treatment if possible. Given this information, would surgical removal of the primary tumor with later radiation to the sternum (or possibly sternectomy) be an option?
Thanks for your response.
