My partner James (Stage iv Dx 8/11) underwent a procedure to have the two tumours removed from his liver last week, which went well. The biopsy from his oesophagus also came back negative, so we are ‘tumour free’ at this point in time. The surgeon who performed the liver operation is sceptical about the original diagnosis of adenocarcinoma, and thinks it may be neuroendocrine carcinoma. All of the previous biopsies and scans etc are to be re-evaluated to ascertain the exact cancer type. I have had a quick look at the web for information (overwhelmed with info of course) so will need to sift through the pages and advice etc once we have confirmation. By the looks of things neuroendocrine carcinoma is very rare and still very nasty.
