: Has anyone heard of the primary site of cancer being in the appendix? My Dr told me it is very rare and very aggresive. I am a stage IV. I have never had any problems or pains from my appendix. I have searched all over the internet with no luck. Any info would be great.
try to get into some angiogenesis inhibitor trial. also, they should check if it is a RAS tumor, and, if it is, use antifarnesyls. pretargeted radioimmunotherapy (PRIT) knocks out anything. neorx makes the stuff. phenretinide and piglitazone may stop it in its tracks. sulindac (clinoril) a safe arthritis medicine, also may work.
