Small trial suggests the scans might help, but experts aren't so sure

I am looking for some information. First off everything im reading about this cancer everyone seems to be older and usually this cancer affects older people. My husband is 44 and was diagnosed on November 30th. This tumor is 8.5 x 6.6 or some where around that. It has affected a couple of lymph nodes by the liver but has not moved any where else. He has started chemo cysplatin and gemzar. After his second round of chemo the doc will do a scan and then refer us to MD Anderson. Is it good that a tumor that size has not mestasized? The Onc will not give us a prognosis. The stent is working his beliruben levels are almost perfect, his energy is good other than when the chemo affects him. Is there hope? I am 40 years old and we have a 6 year old, two older children as well but wow! This has been a shock and I can seen to find any good news about this type of cancer
