My mom

My mom was diagnosed in May 2008 with stage 4 signet cell adenocarcinoma of the colon (they speculate). At first she had what they call a Krukenburg tumor of the ovary, which was removed in a radical (complete) hysterectomy in July 08. After healing, she began 6 months of chemo. In Feb 09 she underwent an interperitonetal chemotherapy flood in Ohama, and the doctos say she is now "cancer free" but they are still putting her on additional chemo treatments for 6 months - 1 year because of the aggressiveness of the cancer cells and the likelihood that they will come back.

Does anyone have any information on stem cell transplants with this type of cancer? Or, has anyone been treated or have experience with the Cancer Treatment Centers of America?

Thanks,

Ashleigh

Hello,

I still think you need a firm test to confirm the origin.  My family made a mistake as the pathologist did not able to confirm and speculate based on the TTF-1 and CK-7/CK-20 instead.  Paly around and treat not correctly it wont hold for long.  Chemo is toxic medicines and it would kill more a body tissues than prolong your mom's life...

For my family case, after a series of suspection, I researched more and found out it is 80% they mis-interpreted the marker.  My mom could be an Adenocarcinoma Lung Cancer instead Small Cell LC....  We are waiting for additional test now.

Regards,

Victoria
