So husband and I have been asking about testing of the cancer to determine if it's EGFR, etc in the hopes of finding the best treatment, doctor resists each time we ask. Today I was downloading the explanation of benefits from our insurance company and discovered one to a place called NeoGenomics, which we had never heard of and certainly hadn't gone to. In doing some research, I have learned it's a labratory that does genetic testing and DNA marking of cancer! the lab needs a piece of the biopsied materials to do the testing, so, apparently the Oncologist had sent a piece of the biopsied tumor in to this lab for testing on January 31 without telling him he was going to or mentioning any results to him during his February 15 appointment! I am glad the Oncologist may finally be taking additional steps to find the best treatment for him BUT I am upset that he is being so secretive about it!
