Hi All,
Looking for advice/knowledge.
A good friend of mine just started undergoing fertility treatments. On an ultra-sound to prep for treatments, a tumor was discovered that wasn't there just a month before. It was very large. It turns out it is malignant. The growth spread slightly to the colon also. She had surgery and the doctor said they removed it "all" and it has not spread to the lymph nodes. However, a pathology report couldn't initially determine the type of malignancy so it's being sent to a more advanced lab.
I'm wondering if any of you have ever dealt with this before and what the prognosis might be. Obviously I am terrified for her. The doctor told her that a fast-growing tumor can respond well to chemotherapy.
If anyone has been in a similar situation or could offer some feedback/perspective/their own experiences, I'd appreciate it.
