Topic: Cancer of Unknown Primary
My husband (age 57) was diagnosed with cancer of unknown primary in Jan. 2014. After several tests, it was determined that he had bile duct cancer. They are 86% sure that it is cholangiocarcinoma. He has been receiving folfox and oxiplatin since then. It has helped reduce the tumors in his liver (there are two tumors, one is very large, now 11 cm around reduced from 13cm). There are tumors on both sides of the liver and I think a lymph node. We have gotten a second opinion from NIH (we live in MD) and no one wants to do surgery. Has anyone else started their journey with a diagnosis of CUP? Glad to have found you guys!
