i was just wondering... when you/your loved one was diagnosed with lung cancer, did your oncologist put you on treatment right away? My mom was diagnosed just about a month and a week ago, but she still hasnt started treatment yet. our family agreed to go on the Tarceva drug, but her doctor made her go through another biopsy and CAT scan to serve as her basis before treatment. The doctor said that the delay of treatment wouldn't be so much of a problem because apparently my mom's cancer has been around (undetected) for quite some time. Since it's already been over a month since her diagnosis; I know that she is getting frustrated with not starting treatment yet, and it's also actually starting to worry me as well. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? thank you.
