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

Hello. I currently have Adrenal Cortical Metastatic Carcinoma Stage 4. I'm doing better as expected. Currently on Mitotane, Florinef, and Hydrocoritsone, PLUS a lot of herbs. I suggest, if you can, read the following books: A Cancer Battle Plan by Dave and Anne Krohm (sorry can't remember the correct spelling of last name) and the "The Bible Cure for CANCER" by Dr. Ron Colbert. Both books talk about how to deal with Cancer and what herbs and vitamins. Plus it has a lot of spiritual encouragement. If you need more info, let me know. God bless.

Thank You Aura for your valuable information. In fact, I had a CT scan review last week and was very pleased with the progress. The 9cm tumour on my right upper lobe of the lung has been reduced to 3.9cm! It could even be smaller...the doctor said since this would include the "outline" of the dead cells in the tumor. Now I am on concurrent Radiation Therapy/Chemotherapy...principally the CISPLATIN/NAVELBIN cocktail. I will look out for the books, Aura, to supplement this effort. Thank you again. Guch S.

I highly recommend that you go to Cancer Treatment Centers of America...they are on the cutting edge. The cancer we are dealing with has the pleural effusion but we are FIGHTING it. CTCA is for FIGHTERS. They have a naturopathic doctor, nutritionist, PNI and physical therapist on staff..They will help to integrate whatever you and your CTCA doctors decide is the next best treatment.
