My dad was diagnosed with lung cancer back in March following a chest infection. he had an xray too which detected fluid around the lungs. This was then drained and they found cancerous cells in the liquid. He had a ct scan but no tumor has ever been found. They have said that he has CUP (cancer of unknown primary) as they are unable to find a tumor, just the cells in the fluid. They thinks its adenocarcinoma but unable to tell from numerous tests. He is now on chemo, carboplatin and premextred every 3 weeks for a 6 time course. he seems to be doing well on the chemo.
Has anyone else suffered with CUP and cancerous cells in the fluid?
Still seems surreal especially given he's never smoked and was so fit and active
