My dad finished his chemo/radio for small cell lung cancer back in July. Since then he has had chest infections on and off and is convinced it's the cancer. He was told, before treatment, that the goal was to shrink/destroy the 4cm tumor. He had a CT scan a few weeks back and when he had the results he was told that the cancer is contained.
Now, I know that means that it has not spread but I am assuming that this means it has not been 'destroyed'. Dad continues to have a chesty cough with fatigue. His next review is in January so I guess that's good?
I was not at the appointment but he tells me that he thinks it is under control....my mum went and she thinks it means the cancer is still present but not spread.
When and how is the word ' contained' used after treatment?
