Does anyone know where I can find info. on signet cell carcinoma? My husband's cousin, age 20, had a mass in her colon and was diagnosed with this rare cancer? I can't seem to find much about it. Any help would be appreciated.

If you put the words signet cellcarcinoma into a Google search box, you will get more information than you can possible digest. Best wishes for a good outcome for her.

He said "No more cancer talk today" to me (sometimes he gets hinky...I think he was worried more about my colonoscopy today than he let on...lol...)

SOOOOO, I'll ask him tomorrow....heehee

Thanks Kathi,
It's not as easy to find information about this one because it is such a rare cancer and she is so young that it really makes the situation exceptional.

He said (my one cancer allotment for the day....lol) that this cancer can also be in the stomach...it IS rare, but the major cancer centers should know how to treat it....

As I said before, he has only seen it the once, and it was in the appendix, and since he is not in oncology (fertility guy), he doesn't know much more than to refer to a specialist...

Hugs, Kathi

Aw, dearheart...enough is enough, already!!!! Tell Don I am sending my biggest hugs...

Dear Jo Ann,

I am so sorry to learn of Don's cousin's situation. She is so too young to have to deal with this. However, she couldn't have a better team than you two! I know you are already researching and finding the latest information available. Please keep us posted. See you soon.

Hugs,

Kay
