I think it depends on your lung met situation. When I was first diagnosed, I had a 4cm mass and multiple nodules in my right lung. I had the large mass radiated back then and it seems mostly necrotic. The smaller nodules in both lungs at this point are too numerous to radiate. I did, however, recently zap a lung tumor that was pushing against and eroding a few of my lower right ribs. I have known people who have had successful lung resections but don't know anyone who has done it recently. Unike your liver, your lung will not grow back if a section is removed. I have also heard that lung resection is horribly painful.

Since you just have one tiny lung met, it may go away with systemic treatment. Hoping this will be the case for you!

Hugs, Susan
