What can you do to manage adenocarcinoma?

ANSWER

Adenocarcinoma is a type of cancer that starts in the glands that line the inside of one of your organs. Talk to your family and friends about how you're feeling, and don't be shy about asking them for help during your treatment. Make sure you tell them about your worries and fears -- after all, they can be a huge source of support. Check the web site of the American Cancer Society. You can find out about local support groups, where you'll meet people who have the same type of cancer as you and can share their experience.
