      Not sure what you are asking. Are you looking for survivors who didn't have surgery? In most cases, in most types of cancer, a surgery or two is necessary to rid the body of the tumor.

      There are some tumors that are treated with radiation and/or chemo, if they're in a nonoperable area. I don't know if a person can be 'cured', but managed with this type of treatment. I work with someone who is stage IV and she just goes from one treatment to another, managing her illness, because there is no cure for her.

      The Profile says surgery was cancelled because they found small tumor under the arm, so possibly lymph nodes are involved.

      Tanseyj, what can we say to help?

      Please get a second opinion. It also looks like your insurance is giving you a bad time. The LIVESTRONG Foundation you can get information at this link:
      http://www.livestrong.org/we-can-help/ Be sure to write for their Guidebook and Journal.
      You might also phone the Cancer society.
      Survival means you MUST be proactive!!
      Prayers for your success
