My 45yo wife was recently diagnosed with the above described cancer. Surgery was performed last week and the retroperitoneal mass as well as all retroperitoneal lymph nodes were removed. All showed SCC. My wife had a hysterectomy 20 years earlier. There are no signs of cancer in her colonoscopy, or gynocological exam. We have received recommendations from one oncologist and have appointments with two additonal oncologists next week. Does anyone have personal experience or information on this type of cancer? Any information would be helpful. Although very nice, the ACS helpline was fairly useless.
