Hello, my name is Mike. I just went through 10 weeks of radiation treatment and I have to say it was the hardest thing I ever had to endure in my life! I'm sure we all agree. My wife found this site and has been such a tremendous help to me through my ordeal. I have always been a health conscious person and was shocked/devastated when I was told that I had cancer. After the operation a lymph node on the right side of my neck swelled up and that was when it was deemed neccessary for radiation therapy. I have all the sypmtoms from the treatments and it has been miserable. I'm scared that the cancer will come back. I have nightmares about it all the time. I have a question.... does anyone out there have localized swelling? Under my chin I have this puffy area that doesn't hurt and is not hard. It makes me look like I have a double chin. I hope to meet others on this discussion site that I can talk to to relieve my fears. Thank you.
