Here is something that you must try to know about Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer; also known as NSCLC, at this point of time: 1. The size of the main or primary tumor. Also check if it has grown to the nearby areas. 2. Ask the doctors if the cancer has spread to the nearby lymph nodes (these nodes are small bean-shaped) 3. Also check if the cancer has spread to other parts or organs. Usually, bones, liver, brain, kidneys and adrenal glands are the commonly infected regions/parts. Please check with the doctors about all these. Once you have the answers, it will be easy for you to understand everything related to NSCLC. reply santosh Mar 14, 2016 Hi Lavanya, hope your Hi Lavanya, hope your relative fights this NSCLC soon!
