Just to clear things, I have two kinds of lung cancer.. Right lung is justplain old lung cancer… Left lung is Mesothelioma that has No cure… Nancy
Nancy, do you know if the right lung is non-small cell lung cancer or small cell lung cancer?
Hi, All I know is that it is a “slow growing cancer” and nothing to worry about. Mesothelioma is in my left lung. Nancy
Hi Nancy- I just noticed you used the term adenoma, which is defined as “- Adenoma is a type of non-cancerous tumor or benign that may affect various organs. … The basic difference between a benign tumor and a cancer is its slower growth and lower capacity to spread. ..”
My wife had non small cell carcinoma, which is slow growing, but was not benign. Therefore, she had it surgically removed.
In your situation, you are correct in that the mesothelioma should be your main concern…although no known cure that I have heard of.
Have you inquired about clinical trials? The National Cancer Institute or perhaps some of the major clinics like Mayo, M. D. Anderson, Emory, etc, might offer something for you?? Lots of research is being done, I am sure
