My husband and I just learned he has a large tumor 16cm in his right lung. He has had recurring bouts of bronchitis/pneumonia. This last bout showed a mass in his lung and the CT scan showed this large tumor.
We are waiting to hear from Drs regarding a biopsy. He hasn't been officially diagnosed with LC however his family Dr. is pretty sure it's large cell cancer.
To further complicate things my husband also has congestive heart failure, PAD, atrial fibrillation, and is on lasix for fluid retention.
I have read on several posts that they don't operate on large tumors and I wonder if my husband is healthy enough for other treatments.
Does anyone have experience with large tumors and other health complications?
