low grade disease

I was wondering what investigations are carried out to find out if the cancer I have in my lung is low grade or not. It's metastatic from somewhere else so it's not lung primary but I'm guessing that the lung investigation routine is the same. Would appreciate some information ... :)

A biopsy is the only way to satisfy the tests to determine the grade of the cancer. If the lung mets is the logical place for your cancer to move to they may opt not to bx it. I know that a mets cell retains the characteristics of the primary but I do not know if that includes the grade. I would be very interested to know.

Thanks Denny.... yes, I'd like to know that too ... . Lung mets are characteristic of my primary disease but I'm not sure of their behaviour in the lung. Thanks again :)
