    Oh No

    I am a 39 year old white female who was just diagnosed with metastatic malignant carotid body tumor (August of 2012.) I also had a tumor on my carotid artery in 1997 (which they said was benign.) . I dont know how many rumors I have, I am having an octreotide scan done next week so hopefully I will have more information after this scan. Does anyone know of any doctors who have some experience with this type of tumor? Any success stories? Advice? Statistics? I am working on getting referrals from my doctor, but we need someone who has experience. No family history. If anyone has any information about this ( these) tumors please guide me in the right direction. Thank you
