How to treat leiomyosarcoma and rectal cancer at the same time?

Hi,
My 54 year old wife had been battling stage 4 leiomyosarcoma for the past 10 years. She has tumors in about 8 locations, lung, stomach, limbs, bone. It has been slowly advancing and is chemo resistant. Now if you can believe it she has rectal cancer with invasive adenocarcinoma. It was removed w/o clear margins through TAE. It was 5 CM, poorly differentiated cells, invaded perirectal tissue, invaded perineural, and has suspected lymphovascular invasion. How in the heck does she attack both at one time. TY

Hi
I really paused for some time before answering your question.
Adenocarcinoma is highly invasive, radiation therapy should be added to chemotherapy , you can ask your doctor to add Aldesleukin (IL-2, Proleukin or interleukin 2) to your treatment,( it is highly toxic )
….i wish you good luck

hi,
this seems to be highly agressive tumour and as u said,it is very difficult to tackle 2 different tumors at the same time.
for multiple tumors,local excisions followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy are the best options available.
thanks

Its all about tumor metastasis, tumor can migrate frkm one place to another, also there is a genic predisposition..

I am really sorry for this
