the Small cell is/was a primary lung malignancy. Rare, but not unknown. The normal procedure after a lung resection (Wedge) and given the histology, is to remove the lobe (Lobectomy)or, a bit more drastic, is to remove the lung. I have also been given to option of Adjuvant chemotherapy. Therein lies a problem, how will the chemo react with the Aberaterone ? Should I stop the Abby tab to have the chemo ? If, as the surgeon said, the cancer has been removed, would I be better having the lung removed, to stop any further spread ? Thereby staying with the Abby tab, which for the last 6 months has been holding the PSA at 3.8. Decisions !
I am fortunate with my Oncologist, he's a top man. The lung nodule was only 8mm, and, in normal circumstances would not have been detected. It was only the fact I was having a CT scan for the PCa that it was shown up. Even so, people I spoke to on the ward had an average mass of 10 cm !
