Stage 4 Lymphoma Metastatic To Lung
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
How can I expect mom's stage 4 metastatic bone cancer to develop? Besides the lung, it is in her bones. Will it stay in the bones, or move to organs?
My mom has stage 4 metastatic cancer of lungs, but primary is unknown. Her gallbladder mass, ca is 19.9 which is high but her liver is alright. She got a CT scan done three months ago and her gallbladder seemed fine. Could it be gallbladder cancer?
Gb unlikely: Your mother has stage IV cancer with mets to lung. I am sorry. If a ct showed the gallbladder normal 3 months ago then it is unlikely. Knowing if it is adenocarcinoma or squamous may help. But focusing on the forward progress and implementing a plan she wants is the most important thing. A supportive family and a clear goal. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My father 93 years old has liquid in lungs. He has long years of lymphoma that not buther him and he recovered from TB a year ago. What could be done?
Possibilities: Fluid in the lungs can be due to a heart problem, but can also be due to lymphoma. If the fluid is around the lungs, called a pleural effusion, the fluid can be removed to help your father feel better, and to analyze the reason the fluid is accumulating. If it is in the lungs, other tests may be able to be done to determine the cause. ...Read more
Both my uncle&my dad had lung cancer&lymphoma at the same time is this rare&could it be genetic? Many males have died from same for generations back!
Many genetic predispositions exist that we can't identify.
However, lung cancer and leukemia together is unusual and suggests an environmental exposure. Were the victims smokers? Any specific occupation (i.e. Miners or coal workers or other?) i'd be much bore suspicious that your dad and his brother were exposed to something that led to the diseases. ...Read more

Lymphoma develops in lymph nodes which are not prominent in ankle/foot. Lung lesion needs bx. ...Read more

My mother had a recent CT scan, it showed 3 lung nodules, 4mm 6mm & 9mm she is 77yrs has had a cva 2yrs ago, history of lymphoma, & ex smoker. Cancer?
Yes. Lots of types: There are a number of ways that a lymphoma can be classified as stage four and there are different types of lymphomas. Having bone marrow involvement or having small tumors on both sides of the diaphragm and in nonlymphatic organs like the bone or liver or lungs can all define a lymphoma as stage four. Depending on where these tumors are found they may or may not cause symptoms initially. Fatigue. ...Read more
Not necessarily: There are some stage IV lymphomas that can be cured with aggressive chemotherapy. Some other cannot be cured but are so slowly growing that people can live years with them, sometimes even going years without treatment, and may die naturally if something else. Best to speak with a qualified hematologist/oncologist to learn about what you or your lives one is facing and the prognosis. ...Read more
