Sri Posted July 26, 2017 Share Posted July 26, 2017 As most of you know my brother who is in India is having stage4 squamous cell lung cancer. Today we went for second opinion this oncologist saying he should get liquid/ blood test biopsy to test the mutations since he had tissue biopsy to check for targeted murations before. This biopsy also useful to know which regimen can be used for further chemo. His first and current oncologist said for squamous cell we just check tissue biopsy for mutations if it is adeno carcinoma we will check in blood. Which one is appropriate We are confused at this moment. Anyone has idea please share? Should we go for lquid biopsy as per second one? If hr needs to get blood test as per second one he got to travel for 6 hours which is very hard for him at this moment. And recent biopsy in esophagus also showed as Squamous cell carcinoma. He had already done with six cycles of carboplatin and Taxol which was failed. Now he is getting Gemzar. Thankyou Kaly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
