I had a lump on the back of my neck and after having a needle biopsy it came out squmous cell carcinoma. I have to have a PET scan this coming Thursday. I have always felt fine and healthy. I have been a vegetariann for 10 yrs and then a vegan. I felt I have had a healthy life style. So I was so shocked when I found the lump on the back of my neck, thought she would say it was a fat lump. When she said the word cancer I dont know how I made it home from work. I got to my bed and screamed for 2 hours. My husband came in from work and held me till it passed. My family doctor called me, he had just gotten the reports himself. He said it doenst say lymph gland on ct report, just mass in my neck. I guess the PET scan is to see if is coming from some other place in my body I am so afraid I am going to die any minute. Up until this point I was out working in my garden and laughing at life. I want be positive and I found this site to talk to other people going what I am going through. I am trying to stay sane. I had another good cry this morning.
