Question:

My husband was diagnosed with stage IIIB adenocarcinoma, which presented with superior vena cava syndrome. He has received radiation treatment concurrent with chemotherapy and is now receiving full strength chemotherapy. We were told at the time of diagnosis that the treatments were to "buy time", not cure. I have searched many web sites, yet I can't find information on what we can expect regarding symptoms and prognosis of cancer progression. Can you give an overview or provide a list of resources, which could help?
