    low grade neuroendocrine carcinoma any advice appreciately

    I am a 30 year old male. Last Tuesday I had some severe pain in my abdomen. I went in to the er. They set up a cat exam and saw blockage in my small intestine. The did emergency surgery and removed 6 inches of my intestine. I thought I was out of the woods. However when I went to the doctor today he told me he removed a tumor. He said it was 5mm and was non-cancerous. However, they checked 4 lymph nodes and 1 show metastatic carcinoma.

    I looked at the paper work and in the final prognosis it states :
    Received a 36 cm lenth of small bowel demonstrating submucosal carcinoid tumor(low grade neuroendocrine carcinoma) measuring 5mm. Tumor is present in the submucosa.
    One of four lymph nodes show metastatic carcinoma. second attempt revealed only one more node.

    He had me set up an appointment with oncology which is Oct. 17. Im a bit confused what is going on. Anyone have any input?

    The doctor said I may need to get another surgery and or chemo. But whatever clogged my intestines up probably saved my life. Yet I do not feel to safe
    Any responses would help
