I have been diagnosed with T3 N2 base of the tongue cancer and what's worrying me just before i start treatment on 7th November, my lymph node has swelled to 6cm and is now aching mainly at night i take tyronol for it, in a few months and the MRI scan reveals the other side is showing signs of swelling but no noticeable yet.
Did any one have a node of 6cm and do you think it is to far gone to help me yet or do I stand a good chance of 5 year survival the doctor said when it was 3cm about 6 weeks ago I have 70% chance but its a fast growing cancer even though he said the primary in my BOT is mild to mod.
any help will be wonderful to put my mind at rest.
