Hi, everyone --
Just joined today!
I've read this thread HTTPS://WWW.BRONCHIECTASISANDNTMINITIATIVE.ORG/BRO...
and would love to know how things are going with Kim. I would also love any input that members can offer for my situation.
My lung cancer is subsequent to my NTM (MAC). I've never been treated for the NTM, and don't yet know what treatment will be proposed for the cancer.
Here's what I distributed today to an NTM support group that I joined last year after attending a New York University (NYU) patient education program.
I have significant NTM infection/damage, and have just been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in a small lung mass, plus metastatic SCC in same-side hilar lymph nodes. It has not been staged yet.
David Kamelhar is my NYU pulmonologist, and Gaetane Michaud did the NYU bronchoscopy/biopsies.
I have an oncology team at Memorial Sloan Kettering (from a 2016 anal cancer), who will be comparing the current pathology slides with those from 2016 to determine whether the new tumor is primary or metastatic.
Has anyone else dealt with a lung tumor and NTM simultaneously? At NYU and/or MSK?
Thanks for any input!
Katie Keating (KSmiles123) responded by referring me to this 360 site.
I'd be grateful for any relevant input.
Happy New Year to everyone!
