Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
It is not difficult actually as you mentioned that the biopsy done in March showed osteosarcoma so if it was a biopsy proven diagnosis then absolutely no doubt in it to be an osteosarcoma and not a benign tumor
Feel free to ask if any more question
If done Please leave a POSITIVE (3 – 5 stars, preferably 5) rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do I am not compensated for my time. You can continue to ask follow-up questions even after the POSITIVE rating

I am a cancer doctor.
I am sorry about your daughter and her amputation
tissue from a biopsy is reviewed and tested and evaluated by a MD doctor called a pathologist who writes a report called a pathology report to tell the results of the tissue biopsy tests and evaluation.
that biopsy from March would have been evaluated by a pathologist and tested
the oncologist would have obtained a copy of that pathology report.
if the biopsy and the amputation where done at the same hospital, the pathologist could have also compared the tissue samples from both the biopsy and amputation and said they were the same diagnosis as well.
why did she have a delay from March until now for surgery for her osteosarcoma?
