Lung Ca: I would not be opposed to her flying if the reason was an important one. I would be concerned about the collapsed lung being a source of infection and wonder why no one seems to have addressed measures aimed at re-expsnding the lung. As a medical oncologist i would be urging your wife & you to see a med oncologist specially focused on BC (breast cancer). I see too much mediocre care of CA pts.

PAP: A PAP smear involves using basically a wooden stick to gently scrape off cells from the cervix, and also a cotton swab to obtain cells from the cervical canal. It's main use (99%) is in the realm of cervical cancer, that also includes endometrial cancer. Little value for ovarian cancer diagnosis (Dx). The pelvic exam apart from the PAP, may diagnose vaginal CA, & less likely ovarian, fallopian CA

Eosinophils: There is no eosinophil testing of urine so I have no clue as to what you are looking at. The bacteria in urine must be evaluated with the following questions asked: 1. Was the urine collected properly with cleansing of the body around the urethra? If not, then bacteria on the skin can cause false results on the urine. 2. Was the specimen processed immediately after the urine collection?
