My husband has been diagnosed with mucoepidermoid cancer of the salivary glands. He has had surgery and told that all the cancer was removed. He is going to start radiation treatment next week.
This is a uncommon form of cancer and I cannot find much on it. Anyone out there that went through the radiation with this type of cancer? He will receive radiation on just the right side of his neck. How long before the side effects begin - burning, swallowing problems, etc?
We have received horror stories from one doctor and much less alarming information from the radiologist oncologist. What have your experiences been?
Scared, but hopeful.
