Linus Posted November 9, 2004 Share Posted November 9, 2004 Hello everyone, I am new here. I am so sorry to hear of everyone's stories but I am encouraged by all of the positiveness of this site. My question is: Has anyone had any experience with a primary tumor not being found? My Mother was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic lung cancer this past summer. The only tumor showing is in her brain. She had surgery on that to remove that tumor. All tests such as PET, CAT and MRIs do not show any tumors in her lungs. But the cells from the tumor in her brain resemble lung cancer cells. Is this unusual? It just seems to me that the Dr.s should be able to find the tumors in her lungs if, indeed, there is one. Also, I wondered if anyone has experience with Temador for chemo for brain tumors? I have not seen a mention of that drug on this site yet. My mom just finished up her treatment with Temador and her Dr. thinks that Temador will prevent her brain tumor from regrowing. Thank you for any replies, Linus Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
