My 65 year mother who has never smoked was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in April 2011. She has spread to her brain and a couple spots on her kidneys. She had 10 treatments of whole brain radiation and is now on her third round of chemo. Her MRI has showed small tumors (over a dozen they tell her). They were going to do a one day procedure where they put a helment on her head and focus only on the tumors, but they tol her they usually only do three or four at a time, so they want to wait a month and do another MRI to see if maybe some of these are actually dead. Has anyone ever heard of this? I can't imagine after WBR still having that many tumors, although they are very small. Just doesn't seem right.
Thanks so much.
