Cheryl Scott, long time resident in Readsboro/Whitingham, VT was recently diagnosed with Stage IIIB Lung Cancer. In December she had a "walking pneumonia", follow up chest xrays showed a nodule which needed further imaging. A CT scan was obtained and then a Pet Scan. A Pet Scan showed cancer but she required a biopsy to confirm type. A Bronchoscopy was performed but unfortunately was not conclusive. We then headed to St. Peter's for Cheryl to have a Mediastinosopy. Several nodes were biopsied and confirmed a Squamous cell cancer. Surgery is not an option because there is too much disease. We met with Oncologist Charlene Ives and a plan for treatment will finally begin. Currently she is being stage IIIB. There is a spot on her left lung that did not light up on Petscan but a spot that will be watched (if something changes this would make her stage IV) A tumor board met last week and would like for Radiation to be considered.
