Fast Growing Squamous Cell

Dr.  Goodman,

Earlier I had posted the pathology that you had requested and I'm still very anxious to hear your reply.  The pathology was listed as being squamous cell carcinoma arising from a dermoid cyst.  Current treatment is carbo/taxotere.  Due to the rareness of this type of cancer, we are searching for any team that may have dealt with this and what might have been successful.

Many thanks,

Hi There,

Thank you for your information. I apologize for my delay.  These are rare cancers. I do not htink there si any one center that has more experience with this than another busy gyn oncology division in an academic medical center.

carbo and taxotere sound like very reasonable drugs.
best wishes
