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

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.
