I would say yes - especially with a + biopsy to her lungs that stains for GI cancer. With a non-reactive ca19-9 they could not test for specific pancreatic cancer, but the assumption has to be made that is what it is even with - biopsy. It is a needle that goes into a small area that extracts a small area, I think > 50% are negative...can that do a laparoscopy and get an actual tissue sample? Or is your wife getting chemo/treatment regardless due to lung lesions? Thoughts and prayers are with you both
