      Hi mleuther. I think the reason nobody answered this question is because nobody has the answer. And many people on WhatNext have said that the doctor can't even tell you because he/she does not know for certain. You can speak with your doctor, but continue to fight hard every day. Many people on WhatNext have stories that they should had been "gone" a long time ago - but are still here fighting each and every day.

      Great answer, Karen, thank you! I wonder about sterotactic sugery? Or off label products? KRAS chemotherapy response noted to be less than optimum, unlike EGFR mutations.

      Hmmm...you stumped me there! Why don't you ask about that as as another question and see what happens? I'll keep my eye on it for you to make sure you get some good responses =)

      Has anyone received standard chemo, off label drugs or radiation for adenocarcinoma with a KRAS mutation?
