Hi Sir, My father-in-law's recent CT scan reports after 4 cycles of chemo suggest that there is a mild decrease in tumor size and there is no new lesion seen. Doctor suggested erlotinib for 1 month as he is having EGFR mutation in axon 19. He is absolutely normal. Is dat possible that blood reports are normal even if person is not responding after Chemotherapy?
