You will need a Doct: I think I have addressed this matter for you once before. Palliative care specialists can control your cancer related pain and try to keep you comfortable. So ask your PCP to find you either a pain specialist or a palliative care specialist who can provide good pain medication in order to control your pain. Good luck

Can't tell: No one can tell you for sure. Best to ask your chest or cancer doctor who knows more about your situation.

Possibly: If ribs had to be taken to remove part of a lung, there could be deformity of the chest wall. Usally, though the chest wall doesn't look "caved in".
