Chemotherapy and Metastasis to the Lungs
Dear OncoLink "Ask the Experts,"
My 14-year-old Walker Hound has a leg tumor that was diagnosed as an undifferentiated sarcoma in June. It had already metastasized to his lungs. He's been undergoing chemo for it since then. I noticed in your FAQ that chemo isn't recommended for metastatic cancers which have spread to the lungs. What is the likelihood that continuing the chemo is a factor in retarding the lung tumor growth or limiting it's spread to other organs? Can you clarify this?
