Thanks for your question.
Sorry to hear that.
Is there any spread of the cancer to the lymph nodes?
The biopsy should be done at the earliest.
after result by sure it will be too late . isnt it??
It is better to consult with a thoracic surgeon.
If possible the tumor should be removed as soon as possible.

hi there . Dear Dr. regarding my father because of the smoking , his lung cannot be connected to oxygen during the operation, is there any possibility for laparascopy any places in the world??
Hello,Thanks for providing more information. Laparoscopy or thoracoscopic surgery is possible.You can try Mayo clinic in US.This is the link:http://www.mayoclinic.org/thoracic-surgery/ The tumor has grown over 3.5 cm suggesting worsening of the cancer.Hence, the prognosis is bad. It is better to discuss with an oncologist to consider chemotherapy. Best wishes
