My dad has recently been diagnosed with small cell cancer of the throat and lymph nodes. They originaaly thought that he had laryngeal cancer and large cell lymphoma but have ruled that out after doing a biopsy of his throat. He was diagnosed on July 14, 2005) and has just begun IV chemo today (Aug 2, 2005). He will not be undergoing radiation and they are saying they do not want to operate on him. I have been researching this type of cancer and have only been able to find out about lung cancer treatments and prognosis, I have been unable to find out about the type of cancer that he has. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I am at a loss right now and do not know where to look for help. I'd also like to know if he is receiving chemo to make him more comfortable rather than using chemo to put his cancer in remission. Please help!
