I commend you for seeking another opinion! Is it at a well known lung cancer & research center?
Education is desperately lagging with lung cancer! Yes, we all know smoking is bad and Yes nicotine is the most addictive substance on the planet! It takes 7-9 attempts with huge support to Quit! Congratulation on Quiting!
I know the stigma and unfair blame that hits lung cancer victims and doctors and research…I am a 10 year 6 month lung cancer survivor! And the kicker is, I never smoked!
Lung Cancer diagnosis & therapies have seen HUGE changes in the past 5 years! Please please seek Proper medical Diagnosis & Treatment.
Isn’t it truly about Quality Of Life?

Thanks for your post 'lwortman'. The problem my husband is facing that even with the second opinion (and yes it is with our largest cancer hospital and teaching center in Colorado) is that they still don't actually know it's a lung cancer. We continue on the journey to determine the cancer type. At present it's a 'cancer of unknown primary' or CUP. It may be lung cancer, it may be something else…..the pathology isn't clear and his symptoms are not indicative of any certain type. It's challenging to say the least. We soldier on now with more tests.
