Hi, Rick was diagnosed with stage IIIB lung cancer on November 10, 2017.  It is squamous cell carcinoma--non small cell lung cancer.  It has not metatasticized anywhere else.  The tumor is 6cm in length and is in his left lung.  There are 3 lymph nodes that are also involved so he has T2N3M0.  He also has a fungus, yeast and possible bacteria in his lung that is trapped by the tumor.
