I appreciate any opinions. Then you've come to the right place as there is a lotta' knowledge and experience here !

Re: Question for Canadians re genomic testing

We are in Ontario. MSS/MSI testing was done before we had asked about it - so maybe standard for stage 4? A few months ago he was approached asking if he wanted to participate in a study that would take some of his already resected tumor sample and do a bunch of testing on it to get more details ab...

Re: Question for Canadians re genomic testing

..... (and the health boards in Canada) It seems all the provincial health systems have created a bit of a mosaic across Canada. What you have access to, what they can access for you etc., depends as much upon how wired in your Onc team is and who they connect with and where they come from. Another...

Re: Neo-Adjuvant Chemo Stage 1 Rectal Cancer?

I feel like I’d be ok with doing the Xeloda again since I know what to expect and tolerated it well but I’m really scared of getting a port. Has anyone else been faced with a similar decision? pCR is great ... BUTT if you have low rectal and ANY other risk factors / concerns etc. OR they actually s...

NO,
nobody here can confirm a medical diagnosis for you.
You need to check this out with a doctor in real life, to see what is going on.
