Are there any targeted therapies for Multifocal Lung Cancer?

Is there any targeted treatment for Multi-Focal lung cancer? Is it always considered stage 4? I can’t seem to find much information on it.

@akfishinmom1, does that mean that you got a diagnosis of multifocal adenocarcinoma? Allow me to tag fellow travellers with the same diagnosis, like @merpreb @linda10 @sakota @meka and @bluelagoon

While we wait for others to join the discussion, I think you will find some information and answers in these related discussions:

– Multifocal Adenocarcinoma of the lung, continual recurrences https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/multifocal-adenocarcinoma-of-the-lung-continual-recurrences/
– Is my Lung Disease Stable or Unstable or NED? https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/is-my-lung-disease-stable-or-unstable-or-nedmerpreb

What treatment is being suggested for you Akfishinmom1?

No it hasn’t been diagnosed but I have a needle biopsy within the week. I went into a pulmonologist to see if he could a biopsy on the sub solid nodule using EBUS but he decided it wasn’t possible. He requested a veran or high resolution CT scan and that scan showed additional groundglass in the other lung too. None but one has a solid portion. At that point he mentioned adenocarcinoma in situ and or multifocal adenocarcinoma so I was just trying to do some research on it.
