Re: CEA 1.4: ng/ml CA-19.9: 7.2U/ml - chance for Metastasis in liver?

Re: Radiation for lungs???

you should look into proton therapy or radio frequency ablation for lung mets. proton therapy is a form of radiation but uses protons instead of xray beams and is supposedly more accurate with less chance of doing damage to surrounding areas. missjv

Re: Mets To the lungs Questions

Re: Ground Glass Nodule

i have had lung things on my scans for 10 years now. some had been mets but others just sit there and don't grow. a lot of people if you pulled them off the street and did a scan of their lungs would have stuff on them. missjv
