ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Slow progressing tumor typically starting in the mandible. Recurrence is common, in my case, 3 times. Tumors then progressed to my left lung. 3 small tumors were surgically removed in January 2019. Oncologist says chemo and radiation are ineffective against it and surgery is the best option at this time. I was originally told that this type of tumor occurs in about 1 in 2 million people. After they were found in my lung the oncologist said there are only about 50 documented cases.
