I was diagnosed with cricoid chondrosarcoma in 2013, so my situation may not be the same as yours. Cricoid chondrosarcoma is slow growing and has a low metastatic rate. I got my second opinion on treatment from Dr Jan Kasperbauer at Mayo Rochester, and I still see him. I had two tumor debulking surgeries (outpatient) to reduce the size of tumor and allow more space in my airway. When he felt a third debulking wasn't the best option anymore I had a more complicated surgery in 2017 to remove tumor, but retained my airway, swallowing and voice.
