It is scary I myself was diagnose with colorectal c. 2010 at age 446. The tests u have done r standard to at least choose the bbest treatment 4 your mom. With the surgeon I advice to ask all the questions that come to mind such the size of the lump, its exact location, the size of the colon section he thinks hhas to be remove etc. With the oncologist ask what type of chemotherapy he/she recommeds(infusion or tablets and why). Do not forget very important to pray, always keep the lord close to u. You r your mom's eyes and ears be strong 4 her.Good luck. God be with u.
