I am absolutely furious.  yesterday I took my mom and dad to the specialts to find out my dads treatment options after the Dr. called and said the biopsy was negative and no cancer was found.  He told us this test is not definitive and he has to have a more invasive test where they will go in and take away a piece of the mass on his lung.  He said there is a high probability it is a lung cancer.  We were shocked. My dad was very upset he had called all our relatives in Ireland and told them the good news and on Sat. we are going to my cousins for a celebratory BBQ and party.  We now have to tell everyone it was not the good news we thought.  Why couldn't the Dr. just have said come in and we'll discuss your results without saying it was negative.  We were crushed.
