My husband (46yo) found some lumps in his neck while shaving about a month ago. He had several lymph nodes and his right tonsil removed last Thursday. Was able to do a frozen biopsy of the nodes during surgery which the ENT called squamos cell carcinoma. He believes the origin of the cancer is the tonsil, but we will not get pathology back till most likely Monday. His ENT will meet with the oncologist this Wednesday to discuss my husband's case. The ENT believes this is stage 3 or 4, but we will get confirmation in the next few days.
As you can see, we are very new to all of this information. What are the best questions to ask the doctors at this point?
I am really scared. Any help would be so appreciated.
