Topic: Just got the news...

I just got the news today that my grandma has CCA. I need assurance that she's going to be alright. The cancer itself is a little bigger than a golf ball, and she turned yellow from it-if that helps. I don't just want "i hope" I REALLY really want to know FOR SURE that she's going to be alright. She's had cancer before and got through it just fine.

Welcome to the best site for CC caregivers and patients.

How old is your grandma?  Where is the tumor?

My grandma is 66 years old, and I'll have to get back to you on where the tumor is, but if it helps, I do know that she has cholangiocarcinoma, but the doctors are double checking.

Debora,
Go to  the internet look it up.  You will get honest answers to your questions.  Our doctor never told us the truth, until one week before my husband passed away.  I was so angry at him, and I still am.  Honesty we need it.
