Few weeks ago my brother received information that he has lung cancer (no talks on staging yet). The information we received is that he has a small tumor on his right lung. Currently we are waiting for the result of the tumor sample they took and we should receive it this week. While waiting for the final results he received chemotherapy 2 weeks ago.
However, last week a brain scan revealed that he has 5 small (1mm) brain metastases. On Friday this week he will receive gamma knife surgery for the metastasis.
So... we are in shock. He is only 39 years old, very healthy, never smoked.
I just wanted to write something somewhere.
