    Only a biopsy can confirm it's cancer. Find out what exactly the results are. What did it say? Was it inconclusive? Could it be a cyst or a benign tumor? And only a medical professional can give you the answers you're looking for.  Clearly you're not comfortable with waiting a year and redoing this. You should seek a second opinion.

Very recently she had pallative radiation because the tumor by the neck was pressing against a vein causing her arm to get swollen.

                    I'm so sorry your mom is having a rough time. Is it just the oxaliplatin or the Fu? She can also try irinotecan, docetaxel, and cisplatin. This must be so tough right now. Please don't give up hope.
