My husband was recently diagnosed with carcinoid cancer. During endoscopy and colonoscopy two polyps were removed. They were biopsied and a carcinoid was in the ileum. He has mets to the liver. A liver biopsy was done and it was shown to be low grade highly differentiated carcinoid. I don't have the pathology with me. He will be started on Sandostatin subcutaneous injections three times a day for two weeks and then go to monthly injections. All the doctors have said it is better than having adenocarcinoma. Anyone else have information?
