My Mom has been diagnosed of Adenocarcinoma. Her doctor saw only a primary tumor on scans so attempted a lobectomy that was planned to be curative. We had bad luck as the doctor saw more "spots" around the area of the prim. tumor and on her diaphram. The doctor did not resect the tumor - only sampled some of the spots for biopsy. The doc says chemo is her only hope. I am thinking of getting results of the biopsy then getting a second opinion on the whole situation. (The doctor does not seem to offer much advice or hope.) Does anyone have experience in getting a quality/easy second opinion? Should we check in to a major clinic in the US and how would we go about it?
