    Hi Nana! I'm a 13 year stage 4 mucinous adenocarcinoma (appendix) survivor. My suggestion is always to get a 2nd opinion from a specialist. I live in Illinois and would be happy to talk with you. Let me know if I can help.

    Lori,
    I am a stage 4 mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix. I understand that it is very similar to colon. I ended up doing a treatment called HIPEC that is not widely talked about but can be very helpful. You can go to PMPawareness.org and see if the information matches your diagnosis. You can ask your doctor about it and if I can help in any way, let me know.

    Hi, I am a stage 4 mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix survivor. Not sure how close your diagnosis is to mine, but mine was treated as colon cancer at first. I encourage you to go to PMPawareness.org and read about it. There is a treatment called HIPEC that can be helpful and you can ask your doctor about it.Let me know if I can help in any way!

    Cory,
    I am a survivor of mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix. It is very important to see a specialist for this specialized type of cancer. If you go to pmpawareness.org it will tell you more about this. click on the FAQs on the left and you can find specialists in California. I was 41 when I was diagnosed and an 11 year survivor. I am here to help if you need me. I encourage you to see a specialist and make sure you are on the right treatment path for this cancer. Best Wishes, Debbie

      Hi Debbie, I appreciate the comments however my tumor was in the ascending colon, not my appendix. I am assuming the appendix part is what you are concerned about. My appendix was a healthy one before it was removed.

      That is true but both of our cancers have a jelly like base. The doctors on pmpawareness.org treat appendix, colon, and other gastro intestinal cancers.
