Re: [MOL] adeno carcinoma



Hi Karen!  Welcome to our wonderful forum.  Adeno carcinoma is cancer of the
tissue and you should be under the care of an oncologist.  There should have
been routine tests done to make sure that it has not returned.  Please get
under the care of an oncologist and meanwhile if you stay and chat you will
find out alot of information on cance from one great group of folks.  Good
luck, your friend, lillian
