Please help! My friend was recently treated for throat cancer stage 4. He finished tx on July 16. After having the scope down his throat, the doc said he sees no evidence of cancer. Will have his feeding tube removed on Monday and pet scan in one month. The problem is ever since he started eating solid foods again, he has had the diarrhea. I don't think head & neck cancers spread to the colon do they? Or does this sound like a second cancer unrelated to the first. He has no blood with bms, just diarrhea. He drinks tons of water because of dry mouth but i don't think that would be the problem. Please help! Anyone know?
