Not sure of ?: It sounds as f you are asking about what this cancer is. What you are describing sounds like a stage 3a or maybe a stage 2B nonsmall cell lung cancer. Best treatment would depend upon some more information needed. It will be dependent on if it is considered surgically resectable or not. It will require chemotherapy and possibly radiation as well. Curable but serious. Good luck and best wishes.

Not clear: The question is not completely clear. It would be important to discuss with a multidisciplinary thoracic surgical oncology team. They can better clarify clinical staging. These links may help with general information: http://goo.Gl/kqdqg

You have likely: Had a chest ct and bronchoscopy. The scope shows the likely origin at the take-off of the upper lobe bronchus (2 on left, upper and lower). Usually a biopsy is done during bronch. The 7 cm hilar mass, likely seen on ct, indicates n1 nodes positive. I'd advise a pet-ct, brain mr if cancer is proven. I can only think of one thing other than cancer...Sarcoid.
