My husband was diagnosed today with stage 4 squamous cell cancer of the tongue and it involves lymph nodes.Doctor suggest radiation 5 days a week for minumum of 7 weeks and chemo as well not sure how much or often on the chemo.The doctor told him he has a 50/50 chance of recovery, is this the norm? He suggested they could remove the tongue and voicebox which my husband said no too...I need info on what to expect.... Thanks!!!
