Our daughter age 34 just had her 3rd baby 4 weeks ago, at the routine c section, her ovary was the size of a grapefruit. Turns out after 3 weeks of pathology she is diagnosed with neuroendocrine carcinoma high grade. PET scan revealed thymus, lung, hip bone, 2 spots on her brain. She had no symptoms, of any problems, other than her pregnancie. She has had her first week of chemo, they are going to radiation her 2 spots in the brain. Everything I research is grim....does anyone out there have any information on this rare type of cancer?
She has never smoked, doesn't drink, a middle school science teacher, 5,3 4 week old children, we are devastated!!
Her onocologist said to think out of the box, she is healthy, young, and determined!!
