| | Need to decide on the priority of treatments
My aunt was diagnosed with a brain cancer and the cancer was surgically removed.
Later on, when the tissue analysis came back it became clear that this was not the cancer itself, but only a metastasis.
A CT scan showed that she suffers from an Adenocarcinoma in the left lung & multiple metastasis in both lungs after cranio tomii.
In the time being the tissue that was removed from the brain is being analyzed with the hope to learn what kind of treatment will get the most results with the cancer.
Those results are expected to be ready in a few days, but for the time being the doctors wish to radio-treat the brain in order to subdue any residues of the metastasis that was removed.
Now we have to decide on a treatment strategy:
1. To begin radio the brain right away (could take a few weeks) and then to treat the lungs (the cancer & the metastasis) <it's impossible to take both treatments simultaneously>.
2. Or to wait a few days (maybe a week) to the lab results -> treat the lungs (probably with chemicals) and then radio-treat the brain.
Please, if you have any thoughts that may help, share it with us
