    Has anyone ever been diagnosed with Gestational Trophoblastic Disease?

    This type of cancer is due to a molar pregnancy.

      Hi Candy,

      I have not seen this discussed on WhatNext, yet. So I am also going to reach out via Twitter and Facebook to see if we can find someone with experience to weigh in. In the meantime, here is some information from the American Cancer Society that might help:

      Yes, i have been trying to create my profile here for a couple weeks and felt like a fraud trying to find the correct cancer to pick, I see you picked rare cancers....maybe I should change. I have been dealing with this disease since March of this year and have had 2 different types of chemo treatment the last being EMA/CO. I don't really know how this board works yet but, if you have any questions feel free to ask.

      Candy, do you happen to have a facebook account? There are some very good groups on Facebook and there is also a Dr. that you should email about your specific case, he can help you by telling you what your next step in treatment should be.
