A combination of CT scans and MRI's are often used—with MRI important before surgery to look for nerve involvement. (MRIs are used less often with other types of lung cancer). A lung biopsy of some form—whether an open chest biopsy (thoracotomy) or through biopsy of the lymph nodes above the collarbone (supraclavicular lymph node biopsy) is often done to make the diagnosis. Other tests, such as a bronchoscopy may be done as well.

Since it is established by Oncologist as Cancer, you must adhere to his instructions. It is advised to go for parallel intake of some herbals like curcumin, ginko biloba, immunoenhancer herbs and esp Bauhinia variegata based herbs or calcined diamond based medicine or Vaikrant bhasm based med (Tourmalin based) which are are useful in cancer and also alleviate bad effects of chemotherapy and ease early recovery without much damage.

If your mother is having breast cancer then you are at a higher risk then general population for developing breast cancer. Start screening 10 years prior to age your mother developed breast cancer by self breast examination every monthly 1 week after menstruation and yearly clinical examination by doctor. Mainly breast cancer present with painless lump in breast or armpits, nipple bleeding or ulceration, change in shape of breast etc. Armpit pain is not a sign to worry about cancer kindly check my health tips and contact me in private enquiry/consult for more details.
