    Sorry to hear the bad news!!!

    Hope your treatment and road to (God willing) recovery are as close to comfortable, as humanly possible.
    Cancer runs in my family with a vengeance, and yet, I'm a smoker... Stupid, right?

    What kinds of tests did you have to endure for the diagnosis? And what sorts of symptoms were you having? Sorry for these questions, but I've been thinking about going for some pre-screening types of tests. Like I said, family history...

    I truly wish you the best possible wishes in the coming months etc.

    Fudd I don't even know what to say. I'm just in shock. I wish you and your family the best during this. And trying to keep a positive mental attitude during it all will help. Be strong man, this can be beaten. My best wishes for your recovery.

    Devastating news. Are they not going to treat it?

    My aunt was recently diagnosed with cancer where her 5-yr survival rate was pegged at about 30%. On my parents and her daughters insistence, she purchased secondary insurance to her medicare, and she went to a renowned hospital through UC-Irvine. The chemo worked, they surgically removed everything else, and now she is on the end chemo and radiation. After that it is checkups every 3 months.

    She's nearly broke now, but has assets to turn liquid but at least she is still alive.

    These kinds of deaths run in the men my family. I never met my dad's dad, but he died at 66 from tobacco-related cancers (lung and mouth). My mom's dad died when I was 8 from emphysema. Luckily my dad never smoked and I never picked it up either. Just dumb luck for me too. It's not like I didn't smoke when I drank when I was younger. I used to have a few cigars a year; now it is more like one every two or three years. I didn't learn my lesson, it's just I didn't get addicted.

    God Bless you and your family. Both my Mum and Pop have beaten cancer in recent years. Keep your loved ones close and a strong positive attitude and you can beat it.

    Fudd, so sorry to hear this. Get the best medical care you can get, and don't forget to care for your spirit as well. You will need energy to FIGHT! Get a second opinion if necessary, and pick the best medical partners to fight this. My thoughts are with you :-)
