@catlover1943– Lipidic means "Any of a group of organic compounds, including the fats, oils, waxes, sterols, and triglycerides, that are insoluble in water but soluble in nonpolar organic solvents, are oily to the touch, and together with carbohydrates and proteins constitute the principal structural material of living cells."

I've had 2 SBRT's. They won't do it if it's too dangerous to another organ. Do you know what type of SBRT you had? Proton, Photon? No, biopsies aren't usually done.

Here is some information about SBRT for you.

Have you done any research yourself about what your treatments are all about?

Merry I have been reading the words proton and photon and will ask what I had in 2016. They just said SBRT would be 5 times every other day about the size of a quarter for my 1.6 cm nodule and then the next year I had 14 more nodules. Maybe I don’t have multifocal as I’ve had 3 biopsies and they are adenocarcinoma similar to the old term BAC which has gone to 4 classifications of AIS, MIA, lipidic and ? Mine are semi solid and lipidic(gel like) nodules that normally don’t metastasize outside the lung. The only treatments I have had are upper left lobectomy and the SBRT. Merry, I do a lot of research but no one has committed to say exactly what I have is called so I read about multifocal and BAC and am only guessing at this point. I hope answers will be coming from U of M. Thank you, I will look up hoot info on SBRT. Sallie
