    Misdiagnosed

    Oh No

    Began experiencing symptoms in 1999 at age 19. Saw several doctors and specialists, but the best they could come up with was "Irritable Bowel Syndrome". By the time I was diagnosed in 2006, the primary tumor in my small intestine had already metastisized to my liver.

    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Diagnosed in May of 2006 with Carcinoid Cancer. Primary was in my small intestine (mid-jejunum) and had several (too many to count) metastises to the liver.
