cholangiocarcinoma/Bile duct cancer Chemo options


My name is Danbee and my Dad was diagnosed with Stage III cholangiocarcinoma July 2017.

They told him the tumor is too "long" to be completely removed so doctors planned to go through 3 months of chemo to hopefully "shrink" the tumor and go through 5 cycles of radiation/chemo together and then surgically remove it.

Neuroendocrine cancer ovarian origin

Hi, in February of this year I was diagnosed with stage 3  Neuroendocrine  cancer ( small cell ) poorly diffenrentiated high-grade tumor (23cm) of ovarian origin. I find it very difficult to find information on this type of cancer. I had three cycles of chemo ( 3 days each cycle of cysplatin and etoposide)then surgery, then another 3 cycles of chemo. On November 7th I will be attending for my 3 month checkup. Is there anyone else with this kind of cancer?

My Mother has Soft Tissue Leiomyosarcoma in Thigh 35+cm tumor

Hi, I really don't know what to say so I'll just start at the beginning. 

My siblings and I all have a strained relationship with our mother for different reasons, and we've all had to distance ourselves, not only for ourselves but for our children's mental well being.

This recent publication showed a very effective and noninvasive way to determine genetic alterations in cancer with unknown primary. In 99.7% of the patients, the authors found that genomics profiling of tumor DNA circulating in plasma revealed driver mutations that are targetable by drugs.
