Ok, my Mom's Large Cell Lung CA, post PET scan, shows mets to the mandible (2/3 eroded away)and a couple "spots" in her back/spine.
She has tested EGFR positive and Alk-1 negative. What does this mean?????
I go to every doctor appointment with my Mom, but there are some questions I don't want to ask him in front of my Mom. I am trying to stay only positive.
Please help, if you can help interpret what the EGFR (positive) & Alk-1 (negative) markers mean. I can take it!!! Just need to know!!!
Thanks, in advance,
