My father.was just diagnosed with lung cancer. They said its a tumor in one lung. There is fluid build up that they are going to drain it. He is otherwise healthy with little to no symptoms. Any advice?

Consult Pulmonary Oncosurgeon at good Institute.
Chest Contrast CT is needed.
Actual staging and possibility of Surgery will be decided.
Surgical removal of diseased lung followed by chemo/radiotherapy depending on stage and as per advise of DOC. is best option.
Early the better.

I have advice for you, both my parents had cancer. Expect the best but prepare for the worst. Not saying how this will turn out, because every cancer patient is different and their symptoms and experiences are never the same, but we would always feel we were out of the woods and it would come back or appear somewhere else. Spend a lot of time with him. Keep him comfortable. And be there for him.

'excess of impurities' in blood is responsible for the onset of cancer. Acupressure and natural remedies may solve Ur Dad's problem; provided all the stipulated instructions are complied with most scrupulously like rituals.If he is a smoker, he should stop smoking to prevent further damage to the lungs.
