My brother has been diagnosed with stage three NSCLC. Adenocarcinoma. He had a Mediastinoscopy/bronchoscopy to reveal the cancer was in the three lymph nodes that he had removed. This was over 6 weeks ago. They state its inoperable and incurable. He is due to start chemotherapy this week.
His own GP offered to refer him to a Hospice and told him to get his house in order. I am disgusted.... It's like they just don't want to be bothered to look for treatments.
He was tested for EGFR/ALK but the results were negative.
We have read so much about Cyberknife, immunotherapy, proton therapy etc ....has anyone tried these? How do we go about getting the treatments? Also what about light therapy? Apricot Kernels, hemp oil etc?
Please help... My brother has a newborn baby daughter and we want to find some treatment that will work.
The mass is apparently the size of his fist and in one lung. Although he hasn't been offered any other tests to see if it's spread anywhere else. Is this right?
