diddytaughtme Posted February 27, 2017 Share Posted February 27, 2017 Hi Folks, IN my endless pursuit for answers to the million questions that i have, I stumbled upon this forum. This week on Tuesday my mother was rushed to the hospital with chest pains, turns out after CT, XRAY etc., she has a "large" mass on her lungs. The doctors ( Pulmonology, Oncologist) did not pull any punches in saying that it is "most likely" "almost positively" cancer. They have ordered the biopsy for this week upcoming, but have already convinced us that it is Cancer, the biopsy apparently will just reveal the pathology of it. They mentioned it seems very complicated location, near lymph nodes, blocking air way etc. Ultrasound Guided Biopsy is up next. Now the endless pursuit of "where do we go from here?" has begun. Trying to decide where is the best and proper place to take her for the treatment once the biopsy is complete has my head spinning. Currently I have Sloan Kettering NYC, and Moffitt Center Tampa FL, on the radar. Reading reviews, US News World Reports, word of mouth has all been great but at time difficult to interpret exactly what we are getting into, or perhaps whats the difference? ANY FEEDBACK WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED AS TO THE BEST WAY TO CHOOSE THE PLACE TO GET TREATMENT DONE! FINANCES AND INSURANCE ARE NOT THE DILEMMA. IT IS JUST MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE. WE LIVE IN FLORIDA, AND HAVE FAMILY IN NC. THANK YOU PATRICK Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
