I have just been diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma (moderately differentiated from the biopsy report) My tumor is large (9cm) in the upper right lobe posterior segment transgressing the upper oblique fissure into the apical segment of the right lower lobe. There is infiltration into the adjacent mediastinum and the right hilum. Rest of lungs are clear. No pleural effusion. Pathologists have classified this as Stage 3A spread. Anybody can offer some insight into prognosis, where best to go and ideally anybody in the same situation ....what treatment regime did you go through and how is progress? Thank You

Stage 3a

Yes, I was diagnosed stage 3A. I had chemo and radiation for 6 weeks. Radiation daily and Chemo (carbo/taxol) once a week. The results were that the tumor almost disappeared. I then had surgery to remove the upper right lobe of my lung. Also 20 lymph nodes were removed and none tested positive for cancer. I guess they were cleaned up with the chemo and radiation. I had two round of chemo after surgery. I will have my first scan the first week in October. God Bless you. Carol

Carol, That is WONDERFUL news!!! My dad just received the news that he may have lung cancer. We are awaiting the first appointment with a pulm. onco. However, reading the radiology report, my dad's situation sounds very much like yours and your story gives me GREAT hope that we are going to beat this. You are in my prayers!!! Loou

I am sure your dad will be just fine. When you first hear the news that you have lung cancer. Terror fills your world and you can not even think or if you do think you think of only the worst. At least that is the way that I felt. I will have my first CT scan since surgery next week, I pray that the results will be NED (No Evidence of Disease). Thank you for your prayers and I will keep you and your dad in mine. Carol
