Lung cancer
My father is suffering from lung cancer. Once it was cured in Sep 2020. Now again CT SCAN shows something in lungs. Doctor is saying it may be cancer again. Now biopsy is recommended, but his health is not so good. He is unable to take breath properly. While walking 2 steps he feels tired and can't walk. He is very week now. Please suggest in this condition biopsy can be done or not.

It would be better if he undergoes a pet CT if feasible. Where are you taking treatment currently? I see that you are from. Guwahati
