    Just found out this morning.
    2 to 3 months ago she developed a chronic cough and a slight pain in her chest. When she went to the doctor they did the CAT scans, the X-rays, the tube down the throat thing, etc.
    They found a plum-size growth in her left lung and tests just came back saying she has small-cell lung cancer; the most agressive kind.
    She is only 46 and I am 26.
    She has smoked cigarettes since the age of 15.
    I'm glad I never started smoking.
    I've been on the web all night learning as much as I could about this small-cell cancer but I am getting mixed results when it comes to survival rates. Some say 2 to 4 months amd some say 10 years to live.
    I am wondering if anybody on this board has had any experience with this type of cancer or if you know the true outlook when it comes to the probability of a full recovery.

    Sorry to hear about your mom. My wife is a radiologist. Let me check with her and see what she says about this. I hope and pray your mom will have a full recovery.

    Thanks Cabo Kid, I can use all the help and prayers I can get. This whole thing doesn't even seem real to me yet.

    Awwww shit cack. I'm sorry to hear things like that. Dang man. I honestly dont know a thing in the world about small cell cancer. I wish I could help there, really. The only thing that I know for sure from experience is from my Uncle who had kidney cancer. The Dr.'s said less than a year...it ended up being a splendid 12. [img]smile.gif[/img] All they can go by is stats. They can NOT predict the timeline. Thats all I really know.

    I'm very sorry to hear that even though I dont know you. I hope the coming years are as comfortable as possible for her and the rest of your family.

    Cackmouse, that's terrible to hear. Here's hoping she beats the shit out of it.

    I don't really know a thing about cancer. But my Mom had colon cancer about 3 years ago (I would have been about exactly your age at the time), and she beat it. After all the treatments, she had to go back to the specialist every 6 months for a check up. She just recently went to the last one, because she got past the normal window of time in which it usually returns. Having said that, my mother in law also had colon cancer, and she died 8 months to the day after being diagnosed.

    Not trying to sound morbid, just my personal experience. I guess the moral is, you just don't know.

    Hopefully you'll be like me in a few years, enjoying the fact that your Mom is still around to drive you nuts. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Take care. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    cackmouse, I'm so sorry to hear this. Hearing that someone you love is that sick is a horrible thing to go through. I know how I felt when my father got sick. He didn't have cancer, but his illness did take his life. Take heart though, he beat his health problems for almost 4 years.

    Don't panic yet, get more opinions ok. And just be strong and possitive for your mother. Remember that every moment with her is precious. With your love and support, hopefully she will find the strength to fight and win this thing. You and your mother will be in my prayers.

    I hope your mother gets the treatment she wants [img]smile.gif[/img] If she has a doctor that can explain all her options, and your mom decides what is best for her, you'd be surprised at how much better the family will feel.

    My mother had colon cancer (20yrs ago) and had the cancerous portion removed. Two years ago, there was a spot discovered on her lung. She opted to have her upper right lobe removed, with no chemo or radiation. She is older so she knew what she could handle and what she couldn't. All in all, the decision for treatment was hers, and the family supported that. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Cack~ I know quite a bit about this type of cancer. My father in-law had it. Contact me at lg421@yahoo.com if you'd like to talk about it.
