Dr. Jeter treated a non small cell isolated lung tumor with radiology last fall. At a follow up appointment a lesion was pointed out to her that was quite small and should have been apparent in the scan she was reviewing at the time. She told my mother to go back to her family doctor who was shocked when she did so. He sent her to a surgeon to remove the tumor than in 6 weeks grew to t he size of a golf ball on her sternum. I raised the roof at MD Anderson as Dr, Jeter gave no informatio
