Brief Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCm

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concerns,but trust me, surgery must be done and this is only possible treatment,although I am not sure if complete cure can be achieved. You ll probably need chemo or radiotherapy after surgery. Unfortunately, this is serious disease and it must be treated aggresively. It is hard to predict prognosis for both surgical and nonsurgical treatment but without treatment prognosis is very poor and it is hard to expect 1 year survival. Surgery followed by chemotherapy can prolong life for 2,,3 or even several years. I am sure that you ll find strength to continue with treatment and wish you good luck. Wish you good health. Regards
