Goblet cell carcinoid is a cancer so rare that it amounts to less than one percent of all cancers reported every year.
If you know someone fighting cancer, the odds are that it isn't goblet cell carcinoid.
But for a Tamaqua cop, fighting the odds has become a way of life.
Officer Matt Bynon, 37, was strong and healthy until one day last month when he felt a dull pain in his lower back.
"It was March 31 and I started getting pain in my lower back. It was a mild pain. On a scale of one to ten, it was a three," says Bynon.
