What kind of prognosis for contained neuroendocrine cancer of the sigmoid colon, negative lymph nodes(8), negative brain, chest, abdomen, pelvis MRI/CT. Resected and treated with etoposide and carboplatin.
My39 yr. old husband was diagnosed on September 1, 2012 with neuroendocrine cancer of the sigmoid colon with mets to liver and lymph nodes. He just finished his second round of etoposide and cysplatin and we were told this week that surgery is not an option. This type of cancer is very difficult to find any info on, do you have any hospitals or treatment centers or any input at all that you think as being helpful? Im grasping for anything at this point, they told him he might has 6 months to live with the chemotherapy.
