I think it's stage 4 as well. Generally, any cancer that has spread to other areas is stage 4.
Metastasis is when a cancerous cell breaks loose and travels through the blood stream to another site. It will then multiply as the same type of cancer in the new site. Therefore you can have breast cancer in your lungs. The Doctor deliberately said the second site is part of the first. He may be trying to say it did not start by metastasis. If you have 2 tumors in your liver, would they say it has metastasized?
The elder Ford has been relatively quiet ever since registering to run in his brotherâ€™s place last week, but on Thursday a flyer promoting a fundraiser for his campaign on Sept. 25 at the Woodbine Banquet and Convention Hall was released.
The flyer lists a ticket price of $125 and promises a â€œgreat evening and dinner!â€
It depends...are you an elected official?
FoFam on the outs with Kathy - no wonder they hustled Mikey into the school trustee race. They had to throw him a bone after yanking him from Ward 2. He didn't look too chuffed at uncle Doug's driveway press conference.
I found a study that looks relatively valid, and echoes the 5-10 year survival numbers.
It's up to you to decide whether those are optimistic or pessismistic odds that the chemo will stem the tide.
That's 3 out of 6. Ford's tumour is truncal, deep, and 12 cm. Also considering his lifestlye factors, one could loosely add him to the over 60 risk factor.
Keep in mind the study looked at all pleomorphic sarcomas. MINO's is truncal, which is a rare, and deadlier, subset within this already rare cancer.
