My mother-in-law (69 years old) had a tumor removed from her right elbow in March. The diagnosis was Cutaneous Anaplastic Large T-Cell Lymphoma (aggressive). Last week she had a lobectomy to remove a tumor from the lung. The doctor indicates that the tumor probably is not a matasteses from the elbow, but another primary cancer of the lung. He won't know for sure until the pathology report comes back. He said that T-Cell cancers don't metasteses too often to the lungs. She will recover from the lung surgery and start some form of treatment for the cancer(s). There doesn't seem to be any other occurences of cancer and she has had several CAT scans and MRI's. Has anyone had experiences with this type of rare cancer? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
