I googled it and it seems they treat the same way. First line was usually carbo/taxol. I had to look on my surgical report to see, but mine was in the 80% of 5 or 6 types of cells. (Serous papillary adenocarcinoma) Squamous was in the rare %. Have you had surgery and have they told you if you will get chemo? It depends on the stage cancer also. Best wishes Donna
Chemo started 14 days after surgery with 1st treatment just carbo and then beginning the next week carbo/taxol. No real side effects from the treatment. They haven't really given a timeline, just that only god knows.....Not exactly what I wanted to hear. I have sent emails to nearly every cancer center I can find to find someone with real knowledge or history of this agressive fast growing type. (I had a PET scan 13 days after surgery, where they told me they got it all and on that PET scan another tumor has grown back to a size of about 56 millimeters (or 2.25 inches). Besides the one tumor there were 4-5 clusters of cells, but the great news was that it wasn't anywhere else!!!!! My Oncologist said that usually the faster growing tumors respond well to the chemo. So, I keep praying....
