There is so little information out this rare form of colon cancer. The research usually indicates poor prognosis.
I was diagnosed in July 2013 @ age 58 with a large stage IIb signet ring cell tumor, microsatellite instability & poorly differentiated I had resection Aug. 2013. No additional treatment recommended. Returned to work 9 weeks later.
Planning on living a long, cancer free life. Any & all encouragement welcome.

I'll keep digging because there got the be some answers for this rare type of cancer.
