I'd definitely ask the medical experts over at GRACE but adeno is known to be a slower growing cancer - and I dont think it would be a detriment to wait until the test came back in a couple weeks before starting chemotherapy unlike small cell lung cancer which has a double growth rate of about 30 days, unless of course there are issues with tumors in certain areas.
I'm not a Dr. so definitely ask at GRACE if you want an online opinion or your mom's medical team. (www.cancergrace.org
