Choriocarcinoma and Adenocarcinoma

Question:

A good frind of mine was diagnosed with choriocarcinoma/ adenocarcinoma of the colon. We are aware that this is a very rare type of cancer. We are interested in the usual causes of this-where it originates, prognosis and possible treatments. We are in a rural area and realize travel will be necessary for treatment. Are there any centers that have had dealings with this type of cancer?
