My husband is on Sutent for his Thymic Carcinoid Tumors. Does anyone know much about Thymic Carcinoid Tumors and the use of Sutent?

My husband also has neuron doctrine cancer, but stage 4, with liver and bone metastasis. I have never heard of Sutent. He has been receiving Ssandastatin injections monthly.

I husband also gets the sandastatin injections.  He has recently started Sutent for the recurrance of his thymic carcinoid tumor (also known as a neuroendocrine tumor).  He has had a lot of side effects from the Sutent but it was noted at his last check up that it is decreasing the size of the recurrant tumors.  Sending prayers for you and your husband.

Hello, my husband also has thymic neuroendocine cancer. He is 37. Diagnosed 4 years ago. It spread to brain, lungs and bones. I was thinking about bringing up sutent to the doc, I heard it can help with neuroendocrine thymic. I see your husband is having positive results. How bad are the side effects? Can you tell me more about your hubby? Where are his tumors? Thanks.

Tanisha, 

I am not sure if my last message went through.  My husband is eager to talk with you and your husband.  I would like to be able to talk with you both more as well.  Hoping all is well.
