My mom had a back pain. Doctors were treating her for a pulled muscles until she had a CT scan that revealed tumors on her lung and on her shoulder blade. The neurosurgeon operated on the tumor in her back and removed as much as he could. He is very sure that what she has is a cancer but couldn't tell us any more details before the biopsy results come back next week. She had the surgery on Monday and seems that she is doing well after the surgery. I live in the states but she doesn't.I am very scared and trying to know how dangerous is the cancer she got. Is it considered stage four since they found tumors on her back? or not necessarily . Can the surgeon evaluate her case before seeing an oncologist?.
