My Dad was just diagnosed with gastroesophageal cancer. The primary tumor is in the gastroesophageal junction and quite small. But unfortunately it's spread to his liver and he has a few nodules on his lungs. He's only 59 years old, great health, no risk factors whatsoever of this cancer. Doesn't smoke or drink and is very fit. He just started chemo today. The oncologist said radiation to the primary tumor is not likely. His liver is in bad shape and I think that's a huge concern right now. He looks so healthy and he went to the doctor for unexplained stomach discomfort which was thought to be an ulcer and now he has stage 4 cancer. Any helpful info or advice would be greatly appreciated. I've never felt so sad. My Dad is such a huge part of our lives and I never imagined we'd be dealing with this.........especially at his age and heath.
Thank you and God Bless all of you!
