Any special treatment for perineural invasion?
I was diagnosed with stage 3b colon cancer last month. I am ready to start my a 6-month Folfox chemo very soon. My path report indicates I am positive for perineurial invasion which is a very poor factor for 5- year survival. My oncologist said it’s presence won’t change my treatment plan. He said there is no specific way to treat the perineurial invasion. I feel like I am waiting for the tumor coming back after the chemo if the invasion is not treated. I was wondering if anybody is also positive for perineurial invasion and what is your treatment for that. Thanks!
