I need some information. I have been visiting the website for about 4 weeks, trying to learn all I could about this disease that has blown my world apart. My sister was dx with stage 3 colon cancer about a month ago. The surgery is complete and that went beautifully!! Now we start chemo. Has anyone had FOLFOX6? Also, is colon cancer classified by specific names, like basal cell or squamous cell? The dr referred to it as "apple core carcinoma". I can't seem to find anything out about this name. If anyone has any 411, I would greatly appreciate it! I went to a forum on colorectal cancer, but it involved mostly the screening and the family history factor. Thanks for your help!
