I am a glomus jugulare tumor survivor with many mets. It is rare so it is hard to find other people with the same thing. Now they call it malignant paraganglioma. I had surgery for the primary one but it grew again as these tumors tend to recur. I've had radiation for other mets, including one on neck. I've been lucky, never had to use a feeding tube.
There are other people with different cancers who had to use a feeding tube. Will you always have to wear a feeding tube? Hope all goes well with removal of old tube.
All the best,

Hi -
Does anyone else besides myself and Jim's wife have malignant abdominal paraganglioma? I would like to talk with you. I hope this message finds you all well.
