My 17yr old son suffered a ruptured appendix. After surgery to remove his appendix, pathology found a neuroendocrine tumor in it. And 1 of the 3 lymph nodes that came out with the appendix had less than 3 percent cancer cells in it. We are waiting 6 months for things to heal inside then having a pet scan done to see if it had spread anywhere else. Has anyone else had this? If so did it spread? I understand this is pretty rare for a child to get this tumor.
