Am so sorry to hear you have another lesion. You have experienced and through this forum, know of the many treatment paths, and over time, the medical world is evolving as well. It really challenges ones mental and physical stress levels.
Your good list of questions will prime the needed conversations.
You could ask about a PET for diagnosis and as far as treatment, Ablation could be an option.???
For my couple nodules, the doctors preferred to do surgery, provided my lung function and health could tolerate it. You and your doctors will need to determine the best path based on the past and current conditions. Please keep us informed and the best of luck to you.

Thank you so much, Stan. I have Multifocal Adenocarcinoma and it is a rare (getting less so) sub- NSCLC. It consisted of multiple primary cancers rather than metastases and needs to be treated much differently. I've had this for many many years and the reason that SBRT would be used is that it's the safest, tissue-sparing treatment that will actually kill the lesion. It will be no more!

I'm not sure if they will do a PET scan unless they have to as part as the protocol. My team knows what needs to be done as I've had about 7 of these removed so far, including 2 lobes!

How are you doing? When was your last surgery?
