A 32-year-old male asked:
He has lung cancer metastasis for bones. He is under chemotherapy and the doctor did a biopsy on a lymph node on the left side of his neck. Now he is complaining of left arm numbness. What could be its reason?

Many things: Too numerous the possibilities. Most important is to discuss with his comprehensive cancer team. After any procedure, it is best to have open communication with your physician team. Cause of numbness or pain can be minor or serious. It would be a disservice to guess/speculate in such serious and complex disease. Our best wishes are with you during difficult time.
