Avatar f tn I have a friend who is going to the Cancer Centers of America who has pancreatic, lung, and liver cancer that is still here after being given 3-6 months to live in 1997, he's still going, living with cancer.

Tony has done pretty good!
Avatar f tn My markers dropped to 13 after surgery in June, then 3 weeks a go they went up above 42. Oncologist at Cancer treatment centers of america said I would get the same treatment here so I really don't want to travel.

Avatar n tn Dear Lisa - depending on where you live in Texas, I would go to MD Anderson Cancer Center! I took part of my training to be a medical librarian, at their library, prior to my husband being transferred to Iowa. If you live in North Texas, there are also good hospitals in the Dallas area. There are also wonderful resources online at sites such as Medline Plus, Mayo Clinic, and Cancer. org to name only a few.

Avatar n tn These are the cancer centers doing the latest cancer research. They are located all over the U.S. and are usually affiliated with universities. Even consulting with another oncologist unaffiliated with your current one is good. Different doctors bring different perspectives to situations. There may be a clinical trial for which your friend may qualify. Certainly, it is always useful to seek second opinions. In any case having an open and frank discussion with your medical team can be useful.
Avatar n tn Which breast care centers are most active in treatment of metaplastic carcinoma? How does one decide where to go for specialist opinions on less common cancers if local resources are limited? Are there any statistics on effectiveness of chemotherapy for this? Originally I was told that after a mastectomy for invasive ductal carcinoma, the next step would be chemotherapy.

Avatar m tn I believe that Johns Hopkins is a good choice for this since this is a specialized highly regarded cancer center. Fortunately, ALL is a treatable cancer with cure rates as high as 90% for specialized centers.
