Hello everyone. My mom has just been given her diagnosis of what sounds like a very aggressive lung cancer. She just beat breast cancer last February (diagnosed early, pet scan showed nothing), so now she has a very large tumor on her right lung with what appears to be mets on her right lung and lymph node involvement bilaterally. She has her biopsy on Friday and pet scan today. I am wondering, with all of you and your experiences, have you seen your local oncologists, or have you gone to a major cancer center (I am in Texas, so am considering MD Anderson), and what are your thoughts as to what is better/best? Anyone have experience with San Antonio doctors, as that is where I live. She is in Florida, and I don't want her to go thru this alone, so am ready to move her here. Thank you for anything you can offer.
