Fallopian Cancer

Hello,

My dear sister in law has been diagnosed with fallopian tube cancer. She had a total hysterectomy last week, and when she heals enough she has to go for a Cat Scan and more tests. This cancer is supposedly quite rare.

Does anyone have any information about it?

Thanks in advance.

Ewizabeth

Re: Fallopian Cancer

Hi Ewizabeth,

I'm so sorry to hear about your sister. I haven't heard of anyone having fallopian cancer, though I did have an unexpected tumor which was found in my fallopian tube when I had my ovaries removed in December. Fortunately, it was benign, but I guess cancer is possible in that area.

Hopefully, the hysterectomy has taken care of the problem. I know with uterine cancers, a lot of times no further treatment is necessary. I'll keep your sister in my prayers.

Hugs,

Lisa

Hi Sashi,

I hope she doesn't need further treatment, but if so, I think she'll be ok.

Thanks for your reply.

Re: Fallopian Cancer

I was dx with fallopian tube cancer in September 2005.

The cancer was stage 1A, clear cell and I had to have 6 chemo treatments after surgery. I was given Taxol and carboplatin for chemo.

This type of cancer is very rare. I was also told it reacts much like ovarian cancer so chemo is recommended. Survival rates are higher than ovarian if the cancer is caught early. From all I have read this seems to be true.

I am back to work ( 30 months post surgery) and doing well. The fallopian tube cancer was my 4th primary cancer in 2 years. The tubal cancer was found during a hysterectomy.I was taking Tamoxifen for breast cancer and my doctor thought it would be best. Turns out I had uterine cancer also (both primary cancers).

Good luck.

Re: Fallopian Cancer

Thanks Annie,

I hope you'll be cancer-free for good now. My sister-in-law goes for her CAT scan next week. We are all hoping and praying she's ok.

She spent the last seven years of her life caring for her dying husband who had non-Hodgkins lymphoma. He died a year ago, and she is still grieving over the loss of him. She has an adult son who is disabled and her greatest concern is for him.

We are all so worried for her and her son as well.
