My 78yo MIL recently had thoracentesis to remove fluid from her lung. She was notified the results were suspicious for well differentiated mesothelioma. After doing some internet research we are of the understanding that it is an extremely rare subtype of epithelial mesothelioma. She lives in Bellingham, Wa and has a consult with a local oncologist next Monday. Being that it is a rare cancer we tried for a referral to Swedish but her insurance denied it. Can you give us some pertinent questions to ask the oncologist? Also, any advise would be greatly appreciated.
