GinaT Posted February 2, 2009 Share Posted February 2, 2009 Hi Everyone, My name is Gina and I am new to the forum. I have a friend with a pancoast tumor and I am looking for some information that may be helpful to her. Her tumor was diagnosed in August and determined to be inoperable. Since that time she has been undergoing chemo and radiation. At first it appeared the chemo was working, but the last PET showed that is has actually spread. She is now awaiting an MRI to determine how far it's spread, but her daughter is planning to relocate her to DC for a second opinion and new treatments. Does anyone have any information on docs in the DC area? I have heard about Dr. David Schrump at NIH. Are there others we should consider? As you can imagine, this has been disappointing and scary news, and I am trying in any way possible to help them discern next steps and courses of treatment. Any suggestions you can provide would be most helpful. Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
