does lung cancer cause fluid in the lungs

Posted by carbogirl

My friend was diagnosed with lung cancer 18 years ago.  He recently had spine surgery to rebuild his spine.  We were recently informed that fluid was in his lung and a chest tube was inserted. 
We were also informed that since the surgery fluid is not in his other lung.  The physican's assistant informed us that his lung cancer is causing the fluid in his lungs.  Is this true?  Does lung cancer cause fluid to build in your lungs?
