with2kidsnow Posted March 25, 2004 Share Posted March 25, 2004 Hi all, I'm copying pasting this message from the newcomers board, because it was posted by my cousin and my interest in the answer is the same. Hoping we can get some more opinions over here: Hi everyone; My father-in law was originally diagnosed with non-small cell cancer about 3 weeks ago. The doctor then called the next day and said it was a mistake since he had not received the actual reports from the specialist. My father-in-law has a mass the size of a lemon on the right lung and the doctor is now insisting that it is cancer even though nothing is actually proving this. After about 3 biopsies, tons of blood tests, bone scans, MRIs and x-rays they still can't confirm that it is cancer but the doctor still insists that it is lung cancer and wants more tests done. We are worried sick that this is taking too long, if it is Cancer treatment should have already begun, at the same time we are wondering if the doctor is wrong. Is this that hard to detect? What is the usual waiting period. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
