Subtype of cancer. It only means-a subtype of cancer. Nothing much. The treatment, prognosis etc- will depend on where is this cancer located primarily? , what is the stage (how big it is? Any lymph node or adjacent tissue involvement? Any spreading to distant organ? Etc. If you smoke tobacco and drink alcohol- you need to quit. Please discuss in detail with your oncologist.
