Though guidelines suggest screening starts at 50, researcher says it's premature to change them

I was recently diagnosed with a neuroendochrine tumor in my cervix. This is highly unusal and my head is still spinning. I've been learning and reading as much as I can about this type of tumor and cervical cancers, but since this is a rare instance, (this type of tumor found in this area of the body,) I would like to learn more about this type of tumor.
Does anyone here have experience with this type of tumor and can help me understand the nature of this particular type. I've read they slow growing tumors that respond well to surgery and radiation, but not so much to chemotherapy, but angry little buggers that like to come back, but I need more info--especially since my doctor was requesting I start chemo ASAP!

Neuroendocrine is pretty unpredictable, normall growth is slow and normally surgery may cure your tumer. As of now i suggest you not to worry too much, just focus on removing(if possible) and follow via scan on regular intervel.
I am from India, my mother is facing advanced neuroendocrine tumer now.
