stomach tumor

why do stomach tumors cause blood clots on the lungs? Does that mean the cancer has metastisized to the lungs?

Re: stomach tumor


My husband also had stomach cancer and developed blood clots in the lungs. For him it did not mean the cancer had spread there. For your family member they most likely took x rays which found the blood clots and if they had seen a tumor would have informed your doctor.

It's just a constant worry isn't it?

Best wishes

Re: stomach tumor

Thank you Mac

I'm glad to hear that about the clots - that they are not metastises.

Today the oncologist gave us a very poor prognosis for my father-in-law. He will not likely see 2009. He is however free of those clots which had been so painful. Blood thinner did the trick.

He has elected to try chemotherapy to extend life and will reassess if that is too debilitating.

Yes, it is a very big worry, one thing after another...

Again, thank you.

Wishing you and yours all the best in 2008.
