I was diagnosed 2 years ago by CT scan. Ssurgery is your option. Of all of the research that I have done, that is what seems to be the cure. Look on the internet and find as much out as you can about it, as knowledge is power. Mine came back, which it can do about 10% of the time, but surgery is the only cure. Chemo and radiation don't really cut it as far as I know. Mine is very agressive, so they are cautious as to what is going to take place. Make sure you have great doctors. Memorial Sloan Kettering is the best, M.D. Anderson, and John's Hopkins is good too. I go to Univ. of Wisconsin for my treatment and they have been outstanding too. Positive attitude is key, and always have candy for the nurses.
