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

In May of this year my fiance was diagnosed with Small Cell Carcinoma of the Pancreas. Ive since learned that this is a rare type of cancer that generally presents in the lungs. I was wondering if anyone out there has expierenced small cell specifically..
We have not told many people outside of immediate family of his diagnosis. Its been difficult to not have any one to talk to, so I really appreciate finding a board like this that offers so many relatable stories & support.

I am very sorry to hear about your fiance`s diagnosis. I truly hope that some of the knowledable people here will reply to you soon and share their experience with you! I know how hard it is to feel alone and seek for others in similar situation. Best of luck and hope your fiance is doing good!

Hmm... I know I have Adenocarcinoma and it started in the tail of my pancreas but I know my husband says something else as well, not sure about "Small" I thought he said squimish or something? I've been dealing with stage 4 pancreatic cancer for a year now, you'd think I'd know but to be honest I didn't want to know or hear anything for the longest time!! I am now taking charge with things and feel fabulous.
I wish you all the best!
