I had base of tongue cancer in September 07 and finished radiation and chemo therapy at the end of December 2007. I have been back for checkups in April and June and the tumor is gone.
When I went back today for a recheck, it still looked good in that area but I told them about soreness on my tongue on the left side (where most of my radiation was). After checking, there was something there (not real visible) just mainly sore. The doctor prescribed Diflucan as I have had numerous yeast infections since the radiation and I go back on September 3 to be looked at. Hopefully, it will be gone, but if it hasn't cleared up, they are going to do a biopsy. All of you have been so helpful to me comparing notes on our progress and questions after our treatments. Have any of you experienced anything like this? Please respond. It always helps to get support. Thank you.
