Welcome to XXXXXXX
I understand your problem and worry.
Unfortunately, there is no scientific explanation for the urinary symptoms and the hand pain.
A neurologist may be of help to sort out the pain issue.
When the abdomen has got nodes, since these are secondary to a problem elsewhere, the primary tumor needs to be located and treated.
You may require a battery of tests to find out the organ of origin.
Wishing you good health

I am a 62 year old woman, 120 lbs., 5' 5" tall. Almost a year ago I was diagnosed with Carcinoid Cancer at MD Anderson. I had a small bowel resection (where the primary tumor was), a right hemicolectomy, removal of gallbladder, and 62 lymph nodes removed in the mesentary, half of which had cancer. The metastatic tumors in my liver were inoperable, but I am on Sandostatin to control Carcinoid symptoms and hopefully shrink the tumors. The main problem I am having now is a recurrence of Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth, I assume because my Ileocecal Valve was removed. I have tried to limit my consumption of sugar and fat, but even with almost monthly Cipro, it returns. Any advice? Thank you, Elizabeth

General health of my father : 1) he is 65 years old
2) Fit overall with no problem in other organs of the body. He has been regularly exercising till the day of diagnosis.
3) He is mentally strong and determined to fight it out.

I want to know what course of treament should i follow. Would chemo be nefecial for him?
Are there chances of him recovering??

I know you cant guarantee anything in this case , yet an answer would help me.

1) Assuming chemo works to his benefit and the primary tumor shrinks and is operated, then what could his life expectancy be?
2) After chemo, if the cancer cells in liver and stomach reduce, but primary tumor is still inoperable, then what could the life expectancy be?
3) And lastly, if chemo is a disaster, then what could his life expectancy be?

I know that cancer is not contagious, however, is there any contraindication to kissing someone with throat cancer? Primary tumor is in the tonsil. Also, do you know the cause of trismus, when he hasn't had any traditional treatment to date? (radiation or chemo not the cause..)Thanks for your time and info. B
