Hi to you all. A person in my family has just been diagnosed with appendix cancer and I would really like to know some more about the stat prognosis and survival rates. Are there any websites where I can find this kind of information? Links would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Issiah,

Cancer of the appendix is fairly rare. Without knowing how far it has spread it is impossible for us to give you any information as to prognosis or the survival data.

I would suggest the National Cancer Institute: http://www.cancer.gov

As always, continued dialog with the doctors/surgeon is extremely important for your family member and for their loved ones. While the doctor may not be able to discuss specifics of this case without permission from the family member, due to HIPAA rules, the doctor should be able to speak in generalities and be able to answer your questions.

All my best to a rapid recovery.
