Judy, my Mothers tumor wrapped itself around her aorta. Radiation did shrink the tumor but not enough for the doctors to be able to take the lung out. Also my mother developed another tumor in her air pipe. The doctors said that with 4 radiation treatments that she should get some relief with her breathing. Unfortunatly my Mother only had 2 treatments before she passed away so I don't know if it would have given her relief. My prayers are with you and your Mother.
