Anyone diagnosed with Hemangiopericytoma (solid fibrous tumor)?

Posted by difabio3 @difabio3, Sep 21 10:16am

Looking for people that are living with and have successfully treated HPC tumors. My tumor is in my mid brain and have reoccurred once. Can no longer receive radiation which was effective in killing the tumor. I am looking for what is next.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Cancer group.

@difabio3, welcome. By having started this discussion dedicated to hemangiopericytoma, I'm hoping others will join in, like @justk.

Fabio, can you share a bit more about you? What type of radiation did you get? While it was effective, why can you no longer get radiation treatment? Did you have surgery or radiosurgery?

I was diagnosed with a HPC in my occipital lobe five years ago. I had surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible and 30 proton beam radiation treatments followed after. I have follow up appointments every 6 months and at times it was only 3 months. I am sorry to hear your HPC has reoccurred. I live with that fear as I was warned it is always a possibility.
