My mom was diagnosed with this after having a radical hysterectomy to treat a stage 2 adenocarcinoma cervical cancer tumor. They discovered she also had adenocarcinoma of the left fallopian tube and precancerous cells in the right. Because it was found after the surgery and not staged properly, the drs decided to treat it as a stage 3 cancer and she underwent 6 rounds of chemo.
We have never met or known anyone with this kind of cancer. Does anyone have any experience with this at all? They did tell us she had two simultaneous primary cancers and that they were unrelated but I'm not necessarily confident in that opinion even though our second opinion agreed with the first. Primary fallopian tube cancer is extremely rare and it would be great to compare notes with someone on the subject.
