  • Cancer types and age

    I'm interested to know if there has ever been any studies on different types of pathology based on age. Are more aggressive cell types found in younger people for example?

    Yesterday was history, tommorrow a mystery, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the "present"

    Yes, seminomas are a bit more common in men between the 30's and 40's, while non-seminomas between 20's and 30's
    - early Apr/11: something is "wrong" in my righty
    - 16/Apr/11: ultrasound find a mass in it
    - 27/Apr/11: right I/O
    - 29/Apr/11: stadiation CT scan shows "all clear"
    - May/11: pathology: 1 cm Seminoma (90% necrotic), no RT/LV invasion
    - Surveillance....
    - March/13: relapse - para aortic node 1.7 cm, waiting for treatment...
