What is the process/to get a diagnosis if cancer has metasised

Metasised cancer was found on my mom's bones all the way up into her head. Its on her ribs, back arms neck and into her head. They just did a biopsy of her bone marrow from her hip. The problem is she is in alot of pain but it takes 2 weeks to get the results from that and we have to hope that they can get a reading from that or they will have to go in the spine to get some tissue. Every thing is taking time and I would think that she needs to start treatment.

I am very sorry about your mom.
We all feel this way when we are diagnosed...DO SOMETHING....N O W ! ! !
But the reality is, cancer treatment is very specialized and they MUST find out exactly what is going on before they can begin the most effective course of treatment.
In the meantime, they should be able to give your mother something to control the pain. Keep pestering whatever medical people she has seen so far until you get some help in this respect.
God bless.

I know bone tumors are painful. my dad has kidney cancer which spread to his femur. It seems to take forever!!! He was diagnosed on 4/20/08 and did not have treatment until the middle of May. The Docs wanted to make sure they had all the info they needed, and it does take a while....for everyone it seems on this site. I promise its for good reason. Stay strong and never stop praying!!
