My son is undergoing treatment for non small cell lung
cancer stage IIIB. He is getting chemo and radiation.
He has blisters on his back and is having pains in his chest. Has anyone else had this happen? We are wondering if this is normal.
He went through chemo a couple years ago when he had Germ Cell cancer which was cured at that time but he didn't get radiation so we didn't realize it would have side effects like this. He had no symptoms of lung cancer except the swollen lymph nodes on his neck and outside the lungs near the bottom were more lymph nodes that looked a little swollen.
my mom had radiation for her lung cancer and it is common to get blisters where he is getting the treatment. her radiologist gave he this stuff called Aquaphor healing ointment. ask your radiologist what he would suggest he put on it so it doesnt get infected.
