My Mum's lung cancer was missed on an xray a year ago and now has a 10cm tumour in left lower lobe next to heart (but not attached to it). She also has two lymph nodes affected in middle of chest but on same side as the tumour. No other spread. Nhs (we are in the uk) are proposing chemo and normal radiation or just chemo to try to clear nodes and shrink tumour so the possibility of traditional surgery may then be an option. But would i would appreciate anyones experience/opinion on the best treatment. Could tomotheropy help my mother? we must shrink the tumour away from the heart and clear the 2 lymph nodes. We would be paying privately. My mother is 58, very fit and has excellent lung function tests. She has non-small cell squamous lung cancer. She gave up smoking nearly 8 years ago. Thanks in advance x
