My husband was recently diagnosed with SIA (small intestine adenocarcinoma) as well as cancer in the peritoneum. He is so young. I'm wondering the other three people who have responded where they received treatment and if they have had success in their prognosis. We are looking at several different clinics afar for surgery options, but are now taking chemotherapy first. HIPEC (hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy) treatment will hopefully be an option for the peritoneum, but for the small intestine I am still looking for more information. Tumors are in the ileum and are 10 mm in size. His symptoms were sore abdominal area and felt like gas as well as sometimes feeling just sick. Came on very quick and rapid..

No really obvious symptoms whatsoever--some gas (attributed to IBS by the medical establishment) and years of increasing and finally deep fatigue (attributed to growing older and depression, though I insisted that the depression was due to the fatigue rather than vice-versa). I had a routine colonoscopy with no dire results. I began to be hungry much more often and belly became swollen. Some months later, during a routine exam, my blood work was very abnormal and months of tests finally culminated in an endoscopy which revealed the pathology. Otherwise no pain or other symptoms..
