I have been taking Iressa for 3mons now for non small cell lung cancer metastatic to bone. Got another CT scan back found another lesion in bone. The drug made my skin very dry, itching scalps, acnes, mouth sores, cramps on legs.

I had cancer in the left lung and in the bronchial area too. Had a pnumonectomy to remove the left lung Jan. 2004 Have been taking iressa every day since then. I feel it has kept the cancer contained.
