What would the options be if it is cancer? The general rule is don't do the test if you wouldn't do the treatment. I'd find out what could be done first. If there is something that would, for example, prevent a lot of pain, that MIGHT be worth considering. You'd have to weigh the risks against the benefits.

I am so sorry that you are facing such a difficult decision, motherof5. May your mother soon have peace.
