My mom has been diagnosed with LC and got confirmation today. Pet scan showed it has not spread to other parts. However, she has been having a hard time finding a Dr. to do CT biopsy due to the location of the mass they found in her upper left lobe. She is also a breast cancer survivor- 6 yrs ago. I have many questions. She is reluctant to talk about it all and to complicate matters, her beloved dog has been diagnosed with LC as well. She recieved confirmation of both cancers on the same day in the same hour. I am freaking out. I am looking for information so I can DEAL with something....Why would a specialist, medical professional be reluctant to do the biopsy because of the location? What does this mean? All Mom would say was that it was a "nasty". Any info would be greatly appreciated. Than you all so much...
