My mother of 65 year old was discovered with a tumor in the pancreas. The doctor doesn’t know if it pancrea cancer. She’s no able to make biopsies as it can damage other organs. Last year, my mother was operated from breast cancer. So the doctor thinks maybe the cancer spread.
The doctor suggestion is make a surgery and see if the tumor is cancer and on which stage is it. If it too late to take it off, the doctor will close the operation and leave it there. She said the risk of this surgery is 80%, but if she doesn’t operate it, the tumour will continue growing causing a lot pain and will compress the stomach and Mon will not be able to eat and she could leave 1.5 year max.
Do you have some experience that you can share with me? Do you know which hospitals in USA make this king of surgery? Do you know the cost related to it?
Thanks a lot.
