Lightbulb Retropectoral Desmoid Tumor

I have a retropectoral desmoid tumor. It is interposed between the pectoralis major and minor muscles. The tumor follows the medial-lateral plane between the muscles and reaches toward midline. In May/2008 - Dec/2008 I had seven cycles Chemotherapy (doxorubicin/DTIC). But since Feb/2009 my tumor has not gotten any smaller.

My questions are: Does anyone have a desmoid tumor in a similar area? If so, what type of treatment have you had and how has your tumor responded?

Any information is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance
