Different types of therapies for my dad's SNUC

I am reaching out to see if anyone has any information. My dad has been diagnosed with Sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma. He was only given the option for chemotherapy for palliative purposes to prolong his life by a month or two in exchange for him getting all the awful side effects and becoming quite immobile.

After much thought and deliberation about the quality of his life in the last few months he has been given to live he has refused chemotherapy.

I was wondering if anyone knows how we could reach out about targeted therapies or different immunotherapies that he could try in the UK? 

Are there any alternative or private clinics? I have been trying to look for some and every clinic tends to describe themselves as the best. 

Anything would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

  • Hi and welcome to the online community

    I'm sorry to read that your dad has sinonasal carcinoma.

    I can't help with your questions but I thought I'd suggest that you also join and post this question in the head and neck cancer group as you might find others with this type of cancer.

    To join just click on the link I've created and then choose 'join this group' on the page that opens. You can then introduce yourself and post questions after selecting 'start a discussion' and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.

    When you feel up to it, it would be really useful if you could pop something about your dad's journey so far into your profile as it really helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
