    Here is the skinny;
    Call/research organizations and cancer centers that specialize in your type of cancer specificities.
    Get Biopsy.
    Test for all gene mutations.
    Get second opinion always! (Use the most experience oncologist with your specific type of cancer.)
    Don’t let them bully you into starting immediately, do your research. (Your cancer did not grow to this level in one day!)
    Hospitals want you to start so you don’t switch hospitals. All hospitals have oncologists, not all are specialists in all cancers!

    If you are EGFR positive why are you receiving chemo?
    Did you start with Tarceva or Trigriso? Did they not work?
    Did you get second opinion by the most experienced oncologist that specializes in EGFR Lung Cancer?
