Thanks for posting your query and uploading the reports. I have seen them.

It appears that your father has lung cancer. Also, it appears that his evaluation is appropriate. If there are no metastasis (spread elsewhere), surgery could be considered. Your doctor is the correct person for that decision.

If inoperable, he would require radiation and chemotherapy.

Please be in touch with your doctor for this decision.

Hope I have answered your specific queries. Let me know if you have more concerns.
