Spread to Lymph Nodes

We had our biopsy yesterday and the results revealed that the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes in his chest. I am guessing we will have more chemo. All the cancer was gone in the neck. SCC likes to travel. Has anyone experienced this and what do you think our treatment options will be and what are our odds. :(

Thanks,
Donna

Certainly not what any of us wants to hear. I don't have any experience with this and will be looking to see what treatment they recomend. Is surgery more plausible now that the location is out of and away from the neck or is this area more inaccessable? I don't know but that probably would be my first question. I do remember asking my Oncoman what we would do if it spread to the chest and he said he could radiate. Chemo is most likely an option. Keep us informed and educated and My prayers go out to him.

I too and sadden by this news but there is still hope, more then likely the doctors will want to remove more of the lymph nodes and put him back on chemo. I will continue to pray for you.

Thank you for your prayers. You really have no idea how much of an inspiration you are to all of us. We will not give up hope and I know God is stronger than cancer.

I'm so sorry to hear your news. My SCC only hit one lymph node and didn't spread beyond that, so I'm afraid I can't offer any advice.
But I will add you to my prayer list.
Keep the faith.

Hope everything is going well for you, and that the fish are all biting your hook.

My wife said it was time to remove that old, it was taking right after my last treatment when I was in Honduras back in 2006; the new picture was her Christmas gift she wanted this year.

Take care my friend I am always glad to hear from you.

Just to let you know our prayers have not stopped. I know that there are some who think that prayers are foolishness, but mans foolishness can’t comprehend Gods wisdom in something as simple as prayer.

I have seen many miracles in my life that the only possible answer was God at work for his children.

What ever the future is I prayer that God will give you both the strength and faith to follow his will. If we never meet on this earth I pray that we will all live in the same neighbor hood in heaven.

God bless you both
