Re: Small lung cancer in 63 year old

She had this tiny bit of wheezing. She had a lung xray which showed the mass (3 cm) and we thought it was definitely nsclc, but were shocked to hear it was the other.

We are so sad and sick with fear. She is in otherwise good health, and is quite a character, so everything she says makes us laugh (then cry). My sister had cancer five years ago and we just made it to the "all clear" stage, now this...

Of course, we're still in the "Maybe it will be okay" stage, which seems naive and impossible, but it's too hard to actually face the other.

Thanks for listening.
