I'm sorry I have not heard of a lot of those terms as I am new to cancer myself. From my own experience, every time I saw a doctor, I would get a LITTLE information, plus appointments for another test or two, and/or a referral to see another doctor, then I'd come home and do research. Each doctor visit and test builds up an information pile. It does seem like your doctor should have gone over the report more fully with you when you were there! Try not to stress too much yet. You're on a new path and you don't know where it will lead, but there is SO much that can be done for cancer patients these days that the path will almost surely have a happy ending.
Best of luck, and try to keep positive.
