any other sarcoma of ovary survivors?
i was diagnosed with "ovarian cancer" in 04, and i am now in remission. it was germ cell tumor, pnet, sarcoma, teratoma and yolk sac tumor all in my ovary. it's very rare, so i was wondering if anyone heard of it? they say i have 11% 5 yr survival rate. what does that mean? that i only have 11% chance of living past 5 yrs or making it to 5 yrs? please help me understand!
I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer-3C- in April of 05 and am in remission. There was no spread to nodes or other organs. I had a very common cancer and am unfamilar with the one you had. To be honest, I did not come right out and ask about the survival odds. Statistics are just numbers. Every woman is different and any prognosis has to take into account that fact. Supposedly, I found from reading, since ovarian cancer tends to recur, the chance of surviving five years is about 24% BUT my oncologist said 80% of cancers of my type respond favorably to chemotherapy. So, take your choice-I prefer to believe I'll beat it. How about you????
residual thymic tissue?
What is residual thymic tissue?? I had a CT done and they found something in my chest. They think it could be one of three things. Teratoma, adenopathy or residual thymic tissue. I already had cancer. I have rhabdomyosarcoma and finished the treatment in Dec. They found this thing in my chest during my check up scans. What is residual thymic tissue. I can't find out anything online on what it is...just people asking questions about it.
The same exact thing showed up on my report from my CT scan. It said there was residual thymic tissue, which might be caused from hyperplasia (proliferation of cells within an organ beyond the norm). I also had cancer (Papillary Carcinoma of the Thyroid) and had a Radioactive Iodine treatment Aug. '08 and this was found during a routine scan. I have a message in to my doctor trying to get more of an explanation.
does this happen to someone else?
my husband just have been diagnosed with teratoma but the docotor sad today they will decide this week if they will reomve by surgery or chemoterapy i just wanna know if this happen to someone else or u know someone who has gone thorug this please share your story i wanna know the reslts they had after surgery can it be cure i asked the doctor today he sad that it can be cured but i am so worried
thank u denised i dont know either why the doctors can decide to do surgery or chemoterapy because they are saying its unusual
I just answered your other question and decided to look at your past questions to see if I could figure out what you are saying.
I hope this hasn’t happened to anyone else. The standard treatment for a testicular teratoma is surgery and chemo I’m not sure why the doctors are deciding on what to do.
The teratoma itself does not have the capacity to metastasize it is the cancer cells associated with it that do. Usually chemo is given to kill the cancer elements and leave the teratoma behind then surgery is done to remove the teratoma. If left in the body it will grow and can undergo malignant transformation. So there really should be no question on what to do. Yes this can be cured.
