There are all the warnings signals that you need to be aware of and those are easily found in publications and etc....BUT it was alao known as the silent killer. WHY...? In my case I had no symptom's. NONE. I went in for a routine health exam, partly because it was time for one, and the other being, I had gotten hurt at work. And decided that I would do the whole nine yards. Long story short...I am one of the lucky ones. Although I had 7 tumors...The biggest was benign.....the others in the small intestine were thumbnail size and taken care of by removing some small intestine. No chemo or radition.was needed. BUT a week or two later and the biggest one in my large intestine could have burst and the story would have been very different...OR... the carcinoids would have just kept growing all snuggily warm...till other measures would ohave been needed. SO PLEASE GET YOUR SCREENINGS...PLEASE. my experience was very serendiptious..very. I am the first in my family to get any kind of cancer...for at least 6 or 7 generations or longer. No one can remember any one having any cancer of any kind! Don't use that as a rationalization not to need one .....and PLEASE DON'T use embarressment as the other reason There are all of "survivors"..that can tell you that is lame! and your familys have alot of living to do....TAKE CARE AND GOD BLESS
