      Sorry to hear this. It will be a challenge. If you are in the US, I would definitely get a second opinion on both pathology and treatment options. The best place to receive this is at a National Cancer Institute designated comprehensive cancer center. He might also want to consider a clinical trial (coming from someone who has been in four trials). Find the nearest NCI center here: https://www.cancer.gov/research/nci-role/cancer-centers/find

      I agree with PO. Write your questions down. Always go to his appts. Sometimes our hearing shuts off. I went to a teaching hospital for a second opinion and never left. I received wonderful, personalized care at the top level. Keep in touch as you hear what your team is suggesting.
