My mom was diagnosed in October with cancer of the adrenal gland (adrenalcortical carcinoma). I've searched the internet for personal experiences regarding the cancer, but have had very little luck. The doctors have not mentioned a "stage" yet, but from everything I have been able to read it seems like she's already at stage IV or V. Can anyone share information with me as to what to expect in the progression of this disease? My mom is 55, I am 32 and an only child. My dad doesn't "get" how serious this could be. Help?!
