as some know mom died with stage iv laryngeal sqaumous cell carcinoma cancer T2N2cMo
im just wondering why it is that some have a good outsome then others with the stage iv. yes i do know that is varies and is different for each perosn as treatments varies but was just a little curious. i like to learn as much as i can incase i ever hear or find someone else close to me with the neck/throat cancer again. When mom was first diagnosed they said was a 5yr survival rate but mom didnt even make it 2 yrs and she did evrything under the sun radiation, erbitux, surgery and then chemo. Nothing seemed to work or help in her case maybe thats why just wondering if anybody had any insight or lesson to be learned. Maybe its my way of getting unanswered questions to make me feel better in away who knows. Just a little curious as i read all these stories of worries, struggles, treatments, survival and then the ones that dont make it. What is everyones opinions?
