how serious is signet cell adenocarcinoma?

Dr. Steven Ginsberg
37 years experience Hematology and Oncology
Potentially serious: Signet ring adenocarcinoma can occur in the stomach, intestine, or in other organs. The stage of cancer is most important in terms of prognosis, and how serious a cancer is. However, signet ring carcinomas are generally more aggressive than non-signet ring adenocarcinomas.
