Hi folks, im hoping someone can advise me. Dad had Whipple for PC, but after 6 months, new spots on liver found. Oncologist thinks it is cancer, says he does not require biopsy. Feels certain. One think I know about medicine is that it is an art, not always a precise science. Wants to put dad on chemo regimen. Seems so odd he does not want to biopsy. Not in denial, pretty good,chance it is PC, but not 100%. Is this odd or what? Should we insist on a needle biopsy? Please help. Thank you, and much blessings to everyone ....
