There are posts on this site that recommends that we insist on having my father be tested for Herceptin.  (He is stage 4 with lymph node involvement)

My mom asked his doctor today and he said he already sent off for the test and we should know the results next week.

hello,

The test is for HER 2 and the treatment is Herceptin. If he is Her2 positive

Herceptin can be a very effective treatment.

Let us know when you get the results .

Wish you all the best,
