    Well that's mainly because it's an umbrella term. Which makes people who have 'cancer' quite numerous even though many of them don't really suffer from the same disease.

    Lung and Pancreatic cancer is what I know for now thanks to those poor excuses for doctors

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    Well, good luck with that. Pancreatic cancer is usually a death sentence.

    What I mean is: At 70, maybe it's best to take a look at making the final days the best they can be instead of trying to hold off something which might only add a few years in almost constant discomfort.


    But you keep talking about a doctor messing up. Why exactly do you think he/she is incompetent?

    lol oh wait no, my mother is not 70 years old. She is in her late 50s but all the working and stuff has given her joint pains and stuff. So at her numerical age all of us feel like let's give it a shot at least. To be honest I know of the two results, and it's just a matter of time and flipping the face down card over. But at the same time we are financially okay, so as a family we don't want any regrets and what-ifs.

    Regarding the lashing out, I feel like there wasn't enough due diligence (is that the correct term). Incompetent I guess is a bit harsh, but I just wish while my mother was complaining about abdominal pain and discomfort in different areas of the torso that doctors would have taken a step back and think about why, instead of just treating the symptoms with pills.

    When this thread was started, at that point we were told it hasn't spread and it was only in the pancreas. Now, it is in the lungs.

    Ah, my mistake. I read that age thing wrong.

    So is it lung cancer or has the cancer just metastasized to her lungs? Both cancers can reportedly be caused by smoking.

    And if it's metastasized to the lungs, I'd REALLY consider the palliative direction. Quality over quantity any day as far as I'm concerned.
