User avatar Dear Jimuff11,
I am sorry to hear that, but You have to wait again for the results of the pathological examination of the biopsy he will take through bronchoscopy. In addition, you have to complete your work up with abdominal Ultra-Sound and other investigations he will recommend to determine the stage of your disease. The treatment approach and prognosis differ according to the type of cancer cells, and the stage of your disease.
Best regards,
