Hello, I recently was diganosed with a carcinoid tumor in my face. It went from my lung to my faced. The area where I live is totally incompetent they played with my life since Feb this year. Then I went to FoxChase Ctr in Phila they did the same thing. I just found this site and I'm tryhing to find out where I can find a competent doctor. If anyone has any thought it would be apreciated. Does anyone know someone who has carcinoid in their face? That would be a big help.

Bella Sue,

My wife has been getting treatment at OSU. Our local Onc recommended OSU or M D Anderson in texas, although hers is islet cell.

I have Carcinoid lung cancer and am being treated at Dana Farber in Boston. Fantastic care facility filled with great caring people and on the cutting edge of cancer treatment. I know that's pretty far from Philly so here are a few of the PA area docs listed on the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation Website. It is a great site for info @ http://www.carcinoid.org/

Good luck and keep moving forward!
