My mother was just diagnosed withh Mucoepdermoid carcinoma , probable metestatic. Four years ago she was diagnosed with paratoid gland adenocarcinoma. She just noticed a spot on the back of her ear on the side of her previous cancer and I had her see a dermatologist to have it biopsied. The pathology report came back with a diagnosis of Mucoepidermoid carcinoma, probable metastatic. I am curious if there is anyone out there with similar situations. I have been reading up on this type of cancer and what i have read is that it can be excised and or radiated. however radiotherapy has not recieved very good reviews.
Please if there is someone out there with similar experiences I would be so interested in hearing what you did. this is a real shock to all of us that this has occurred and I am trying to be the level headed one in the family and try and make the best course of action for my beautiful mother.
I hope someone can give me some advise.
