tonsil cancer

I am a 54 year old woman newly diagnosed with tonsil cancer. My brother, who is 49, was diagnosed 2 1/2 years ago with the same cancer. He successfully underwent radiation and has been cancer free. The doctors are baffled. We are not, and have never been, smokers. We will soon be working with a geneticist to explore this bizarre circumstance. Anyone ever hear of siblings with tonsil cancer? All comments and questions welcome.
