My Mum has NSCLC in one lung. Following an intense course of radiotherapy and a Ct scan the results show today that the tumour has not shrunk, does this mean that the radiotherapy is still working, the last dose of radiotherapy was in Feb 18. Good news that the cancer has not spread to other organs but we have informed that there is an additional 1cm tissue that is concerning them attached to the original mass and could be the start of new cancer activity. It is a 12 week wait for a further CT scan. My question is how likely could this be and if no shrinkage in the original tumour mass in 4 months could the radiotherapy still be working or in my mum's case can this cancer be kept isolated and contained. Discussion with consultant if there is new cancer activity new treatment of systemic would be offered, she was previously informed that immunotherapy was not an option as my mum would not be receptive to this type. This is my first post and I and my mum are really worried of our news today. I would be grateful for any comments or advice and thanks in advance. Louise X X
