For people who have have had liver metastasis, I'm wondering how it was diagnosed. Obviously lesions or abnormalities would show up on a ct or pet scan. Do oncologists usually assume it's cancer based on the history or do they do a biopsy before starting chemo? Lesions showed up on my husbands ct. The onc ordered an MRI and testing of the CEA. (pet scans are difficult to get in Ontario). She didn't mention a possible biopsy. Is this normal?
