Hi Lady,

I'm glad you're still watching the BAC and not had to start treatment. There isn't a "natural" activity for BAC though it does sound as it yours is quite slow growing. We have tons of informaiton on the subject. The first 2 posts, the most recent, are an excellent places to start, Myths and Misconceptions About Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma (BAC) and Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma (BAC): What is It? http://cancergrace.org/lung/category/lung-cancer/special-populations-in…

The time between scans depends and ranges from yearly to 6 and 12 weeks depending on how aggressive the cancer is.

Best of luck,
