My father have been on Tagrisso for 5 years since 2015 with no progression until recently. Below is the new CT report in July comparing the CT in Jan 2020.
He did have EGFR with T790M positive. Tagrisso is the second-line treatment with Iressa as the first-line. My father does not have any symptoms at the moment.
We live in Toronto with the possibility of clinical trials. Will be seeing our oncologist this Thursday.
Would love to get your thoughts on the following question:
1. Unfortunately, there are some signs of progression with the two bone mets.
Are these mild progression? I have listened to many videos on this wonderful site. Perhaps we can wait for another CT scan in 3 months? Or maybe 3 months is too long to wait
In the meantime, is it reasonable to try Radiation therapy to the two bone mets?
2. In this video below, Repeat Biopsy seems like a good idea.
I am wondering if it is possible to take biopsy to the bone now given the size.
3. The current CT covers the upper body. Do you think it would be reasonable to check if there are any brain mets or CT for the lower body?
My grandma had lung cancer and brain mets.
Many many thanks!
