My wife has very recently been diagnosed with an immature teratoma of the ovary.
We've been told that this is a very rare cancer (apparently making up 1% of all ovarian cancer cases), and although the specialists and experts have been absolutely brilliant- there's very little (modern!) information on the internet about it.
Anyone with any experiences of it?
Secondly, I appreciate this might be a little paranoid. The specialist told us that there's an 80% chance that this can be cured with no recurrence. Which, clearly, is excellent news.
However, I've done that silly thing of playing Dr Google and come across this page
Which suggests "survival rates of 25% or less when the tumors are found to be Grade 3"- and my wifes tumors are Grade 3.
However (and i'm probably answering my own questions here) the sources to that page seem extremely dated. Seems frankly irresponsible of them.
Am I best to totally ignore that and concentrate on what the specialist said? (even writing that sounds silly!)
(It's only been a few weeks since we found out she had cancer at all- so forgive me if I seem a little anxious)
