Hi Kadidlehopper,

I'm sorry to hear that you were diagnosed with lung and brain cancer. If you don't know which questions to ask-- you start with your concerns: What is my prognosis? What should I expect after radiation/chemo? What can I expect to feel during radiation and chemo? Is there anything I should avoid? (ie. foods, activity, etc)

Anything that may concern you should be written on a piece of paper in case you forget. Keep that paper with you at all times and pull it out when you have your doctors time.

Wishing you the best,

Hi pallab,

I'm sorry but the only person who could suggest if you may have lung cancer at your young age is your doctor. For what it's worth I do not think you may have cancer but you are certainly predisposed if you're a smoker. Any thoughts on quitting?
