Expert response

Hi, It would be extremely unusual if she had development of lymphoma within the lungs. What I would do is to get her to a pulmonologist (lung specialist) to evaluate these lung nodules. A biopsy may be necessary to confirm the presence of a secondary cancer – if it exists.
Take care & let us know what is found,
