Re: New here - Mom just diagnosed

Sorry to hear about your mom. I don't know enough about the type of cancer your mom has, but with my husband's cancer it did not even show on lung x-rays that were taken in April 05 and then diagnosed with Stage IV SCLC the first week in June 05.
I have read though (not sure where) that when cancer spreads in the body it can "hide" and then just sorta jumps out and shows up on the scans. Cancer is a mystery in so many ways so it is hard to know.
I do hope your mom gets some quality.
