What is a non small cell? I’m sorry I’m really new to this

Non small cell is operable and small cell is not. Small cell is more aggressive and spreads or can. Mine hasn't as of yet.

Haven't heard of NSC coming back as SC, wow..

Jeff Andrews 3 years

I wish mine hasn't I was Cancer free for 15 months then on October 27th there was something a Swollen Lymph Node was seen on a CT Scan as my Oncologist called it. So I had a Pet Scan Showed a less than 1cm on my Left Upper Lobe. So a Biopsy ordered and is Small Cell Lung Cancer both are Limited and Contained.

Jeff Andrews

I am non small cell squamous.. İt is the more aggressive one in nsc.

Rose Velez 3 years

I was told that I had Adenocarcinoma of the lung NSCLC. No mention of squamous or not. It's not and never has been in either of my lungs, just supraclavical lymph nodes and one node in my throat area and then months later, while no longer in the nodes it showed up in my pari-cardial effusions, probably also in my plural effusions too but they weren't tested.... Was never told what stage and I don't need to know either.. All I do know is that I'm fighting it and enjoying life as much as I can...

Jeff Andrews 3 years

No if you have adeno you dint have squamous... İ have that .

Rose Velez 3 years

So how did it get to your node, if not in the lung. Your blood ?

Rose Velez 3 years

My grandmother has adeno and nsc.

I'm told both mine were caught early. The second was from my 6 month CT Scan. My next Scans end of February. Since Radiation is done as will be my second bout doing Chemotherapy.

I have nsclc that is squamous cell carcinoma. Seems I was extremely lucky enough for them to catch is while it was still StageI. However, the downside is they are going to totally remove my right lung just to make sure they get it all. As you could imagine, I just can't wait for that.

Did all of u do chemo

Stage 4 lung cancer small cell

Janette Connors 3 years

I did not but they have given me a choice to do a round after the surgery to make sure they got all of the cancer and I am going to do it. I want this stuff completely gone from me.

James Staton 3 years

They said could not do surgery just chemo to prolong life but with chemo there is barely life.. Mom was a walking corpse black stool pale white can't breathe... Until said enough and better after 1 week and that was no quality of life..

Janette Connors 3 years

Horrible experience

Janette Connors 3 years

I did first time after my Surgery and now.

Two years ago today I had my left lung removed. Today I am cancer free. I did not need chemo however did have one treatment. You do not need two lungs. I do tire easier but that is a small price to be. Hugs

10th June 2014 right lung removed, adenocarcinoma stage 2A, followed by chemo. All well so far with lung but had unrelated prostate cancer 2016 successfully treated and all check-ups OK so far.

stage iv NSCLC, ULL removed, spread to multiple other areas, had chemo, now on radiation and immunotherapy

Alison Chaney

I beat it 5 years ago. I had no radiation, nor chemo. Instead, I opted to have the operation right away. Afterwards, I was cancer free, and needed no treatments. I still go for check ups, but that's it. So yes, you really can beat lung cancer!
