Re: Dad has Lung Cancer...help!!
Hi, Im sorry to hear what your father is going thru. The doctors can see on CT scans if lymphnodes are enlarged...that usually prompts the biopsy. But, to be POSITIVE, yes you are right, they need the biopsy. And, yes by the biopsy they can tell if it is the original type of cancer cells that he had 10 years ago. If thats the case, then they will call it "matastesized" in other words "has spread". Good luck to you and let us know how your father is doing.
