      Does your mom have a second opinion? No matter how experienced a particular doctor is, a second opinion can be crucial in cancer treatment. Oftentimes there may be no established treatment for a particular cancer, and locating a doctor with the greatest amount of experience can make a big difference. I would advise your mom to obtain even a second diagnosis as well as treatment options from the largest center near you with a specialist in her type of cancer. Traveling to a regional center should not be out of the question in order to determine her best path.

I called MD Anders to ask them to support my mom but they were so money concerned to tell me that they were not comfortetable helping someone not patient (not paying in other words...)

      I don't have any experience with European medical system but I did found a website that shows on a map where you can find European Gynaecological Oncology Centres - http://www1.esgo.org/forum/OncogynaecologicalCentres/list.asp . The website is geared toward doctors but if you click on the links you can find information about each centre and its head who you could contact by e-mail or do an Internet search on his/her name for phone number.
