My name is Kurtis and I'm 18 years old. When I was 16 I was diagnosed with stage IV signet ring mucinous adenocarcinoma of the colon. I had a few surgeries to remove the baseball size tumor on my colon, and they ended up removing part of the colon as well. I went through chemo for about 7 months and was in remission for about 10 months, until a routine PET scan showed that the same cancer has now metastasized to the kidney. There are only two small spots and the cancer in the colon hasn't returned. Apparently this type of cancer is really rare, anyone know anything about it?
