If I had 1/3 of a lung removed for lung cancer, what are the chances of me surviving without radiation?
Pretty good: If positive lymph nodes are found during surgery, usually chemotherapy is recommended. Radiation after surgery is not as common and certainly quite unusual without combining it with chemotherapy. So, chances are you will not need radiation after surgery, but you may need chemotherapy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body.

Why does my husband have to have chemotherapy for nonsmall cell lung cancer in which he had two right lobes removed 2 months ago?
Adjunct ChemoRx: I'm glad your husbands tumor was operable. The decision about giving adjunct chemotherapy is based on how big the tumor is, what subtype (there are dozens just for lung), and how far it was found to have gotten at surgery. Some protocols give improved survival (time, overall) if some chemotherapy is given. He does not HAVE to take it but needs to be given the facts himself. Best wishes. ...Read more

Dad,Oscar,was told stage 4 lung cancer 2.5 wks ago. 1/3 sz brain tumor removed. 3 brain lesions. In bones&pos liver. Would u cyperknife brain tomorrow?
It depends: If you are 76, your Dad must be late 80s or early 90s. At such an advanced age it may not be worth being so aggressive with terminal cancer that at such advanced stage means he has only few weeks to few months left. However, if his desire is to be aggressive, Cyberknife is an effective an low risk procedure and I would recommend it highly. Otherwise, hospice care is very appropriate. ...Read more
Very variable: This varies with cancer type and route of spread among other factors. At the time of diagnosis, small cell lung cancer is more often already spread to other organs. Non-small cell cancer can stay as small lung nodules for a couple of years before picking up speed. Spreading via the blood vessels can be sometimes faster than spread through the lymph nodes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Rarely is cured.: It depends on the stage and if the cancer has spread. Small cell lung carcinoma is usually treated with chemotherapy and radiation. It is one of the most aggressive subtypes of lung cancer. Definitely consult with an oncologist, but patients with small cell should weigh the benefits of participating in treatment offered in clinical trials at university centers. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If possible, best treated with surgical resection. If not, can be treated with radiation and /or chemotherapy. Newer treatments are generally aimed at patients not considered good surgical candidates. Most common cause: smoking. ...Read more
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
