What does Stage 3B Mean?

My mother-in-law has been diagnosed with lung cancer, non-small cell, stage 3B. Need some help in understanding what that means. She is starting chemo next weeks and is not able to undergo radiation apparently because the cancer is scattered through the left lung and the dr said she would probably not survive radiation of the entire lung. Thanks.

If the above link doesn't work, then try [url]www.oncologychannel.com[/url]. On the left click lung cancer. Scroll to the bottom of the page for staging.
