RE: Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Hi David, what was the prognosis ?

Squamas Cell Lung Cancer

by chrised - January 10, 2016

I will try to be brief here as I do not want to bore people but I wanted to ask this. My mother is 80yrs old, 25yrs ago she had esophageal cancer. Last week the Drs said she has lung cancer (MRI and biopcy confirmed this) and she has been referre to an Oncologist. We went to the 1st appointment (she thought they were going to admit her to the hospital as she was feelingvery badly). The Dr said surgery is out of the question due to her ago and that she dropped 30lb in 7 weeks. Chemo and radiation may shrink the tumor, but no guarantees and may make her feel terrible. I asked him if she were his mother what he would do and he said...nothing, treat the symptoms as they come. The last 3 days, she has had good days. I know the bad days are coming also. She is in denial about this and how serious it is. I asked the Dr in private if she will see christmas 2016 and he said 50/50. Can anyone share their thoughts on this and what lies ahead ? I have mixed empotions ? By the way, she is steadily eating again, but I do have to remind her. Sorry if I babbled, just confused at the moment. Thank you
