My mother is 62 years old, chain smoker of 50 years.has had bladder removale due to cancer, also half of her tongue removed due to squamous cell carcinoma and removal of lymph nodes on right side. Now the doctors say it is back in her tongue and 3 very fast growing tumors (squamous cell)growing on her neck. She started radiation on Monday, 2 times a day-5 days a week-for six weeks! Then xray of chest shows a 1 inch mass found on lung which will be biopsied tommorow! She also has these strange little cyst like bumps under the skin on her arm, hips, legs! she will be biopsied for the bumps tommorow....The tumors in her neck are growing so quickly,does anyone know if there is a link between neck and tongue cancer and lung cancer? They say her cancer (neck) is at stage 2 but growing quickly! After 3 days of radiation they are starting to get mushy, is this good? Thank you to all who read this, any advise will be helpfull!
