My mom was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma lung cancer in may of this year. She went through surgery and chemotherapy. She has had exrays since and they so far have looked ok. My question is what is the percentage rate of this reoccuring? and if so would it be the same cancer or different? And would it come back in the same spot? View response.

If you have small cell lung cancer and they're able to remove a portion of the lung and some lymph nodes close to that area are affected, how likely is it, that it can spread during surgery? If you have the surgery, will you still have to take the chemo and radiation? View response.
