Cancer Unknown Primary

Posted by @beth57 in Cancer, Dec 30, 2011

I was diagnosed in March '11 with CUP after a squamous cell tumor was found in my spine. After major surgery on my back, a round of radiation and three months of chemo, it has spread to my pelvis and liver. I had a bad squamous cell on my lower lip that was removed via MOHS. They have no idea where this started. I would love to talk to anyone who has experienced something like this.

Have they suggested surgery for your spine? I have a titanium cage that now surrounds my spine to keep from collapsing. They took as much of the tumor but no telling how much is left. My main concern now is the spread of this to other bones and organs. If you haven't had a biopsy of the tumor in your back, I would suggest that. It might not be the same cells as the melanoma cells.
