My mother has just been diagnosed with a golf-ball size neuroendricine tumor of unknown primary. It is in her retroperitenium. It is inoperable because it is entwined in the ureter and in close proximity to the vena cava. She will be starting chemotherapy treatment this week.
This is a rare form of cancer and I wondered if there is anyone who knows any more information that might be helpful on this subject. Or anyone who has a similar diagnosis.
We know we have a great fight ahead of us but I cannot not imagine life without my mother so fight we will!
