I don't get it. I just heard him say on the radio himself that "the tumor was malignant, but some of the cells spread so he's getting further treatment."

Let's not be ignorant, you don't have to be a smoker to get lung cancer (but it does help). I have family that have died from lung cancer. It is not pretty.

when you get lung cancer most of the time it started some where else and ended up in the lungs. then it usually spreads to the brain. that is why the news is misleading they print one headline and people believe whatever they say.

I feel ya roach. My bil is dealing with this monster and it mets to his brain. They are not giving him a time frame yet, but he had his left lung out, and just had brain surgery to remove one of the three tumors. The other two are inoperable. And he lives in another state. I'm trying to time my trip to be the best for him. Don't want to wait too long though.

He was a heavy cigarette smoker, though he quit years ago. He also smoked cigars. Another reason to quit.
