Hi, I would like to just talk about my brother who was diagnosed with this cancer 5 months ago and sadly passed away 4 weeks ago. My brother was 42 yrs old and how can this be such a slow growing tumour as they say and yet took his life so quickly. His tumour was in the chest and they could not operate he had chemo was on steroids and yet it seems he never stood a chance. Having developed a chest infection he became quiet ill and was in hospital but within the week he was in there he passed away so it can happen very quickly. He has left a loving wife and two boys I feel so angry as this cancer can go undetected and you might never know you have it till it is to late. I am happy for those of you who have had treatment and all is going well. We are all coming to terms with his death even his own mum who is 78 yrs old. Sorry to sound so negetive I don't mean to but just wish my brother had longer as all the things I read on this the success rate the different treatments all seems to have been of no use to my brother. All I can say is keep your chins up hope any treatment you have will be a success for you and live life everyday and to the full.
