Hi there, I have been diagnosed with omentum cancer. My oncologist stated that surgery is not an option, but I am wondering a couple of things that perhaps one of you might kindly take the time to answer I am considered a high risk patient also due to previous cancer and diabetes, etc. I have yet to work up the treatment plan with my Dr.
He is a fabulous doctor but can be brusk and often it is hard to get a good understanding when speaking with him. So basically my head is spinning and aching and I would love to get some insight from the people in the know Many peritoneal cancers seed into the omentum, signs and symptoms of omentum cancer.
The peritoneal cavity is where all the abdominal organs lie. You can have a peritoneal cancer without seeding into the omentum. There are some cases where the primary source of a tumor is the omentum, but cancer in the omentum usually has a primary tumor located elsewhere.
You can have your omentum removed. I would further question why he considers omentum removal problematic. Your doctor needs to give you more info regarding staging etc If your doc refuses to take the time and explain what is going on with your body and what type of cancer you have and all of your options, I would get a second opinion.
It is your body and your life. You have a right for him to answer your questions in manner in which you can understand. I, too, had my omentum removed, signs and symptoms of omentum cancer, as I had seeding throughout.
Where are you located? You need to know and to understand. I have primary peritoneal cancer with seeds across my peritoneum and all the organs of the abdomen. It is also on the signs and symptoms of omentum cancer. Having a doctor who has a brusk bedside manner is not what you want at this time is it? Is your doctor an oncologist? Like Alice, I think you should be treated by a cancer specialist and one who is under a specialist cancer centre. You asked whether your condition is terminal.
I was told that my illness had a poor prognosis to be honest, but I responded well to chemotherapy and I have more hope now than I had at the time of diagnosis. I wish you every good thing and healing thoughts go your way. I think the cancer signs and symptoms of omentum cancer begins somewhere other than the omentum.
Where do u live? Most people on here have had debulking surgery. They remove the whole omentum and a bunch of other stuff. Can i ask how old you are? I just would want to know all my options. When my mom got treated i looked alot of terms up on the computer on peritoneal cancer and than when i went in with her i took a notebook and wrote all the info down.
If he had to slow down than he had to slow down. This is ur life and u have to fight for what i deserve. The content signs and symptoms of omentum cancer this site is for informational purposes only.
