My 69yr old mother had an xray and a CT scan showing a 7.3cm mass in her lungs that is pressing or wrapping around her bronchial tube. She has had a CT scan of her brain also which came up all clear. She is being sent for a consultation with a cancer clinic on the 20th.
Is there any scenario in which they would not do a biopsy and tell her treatment is not an option based off of an xray and CT scan alone?
Seems to me the fact that her brain scan came up clear is very good news so far and something they should be jumping on ASAP.
Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, we are in Canada.
