I have recently been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma. It was an accident really. I was being set up for a biopsy on my scalp when I noticed a swollen lymph node behind my right ear. The lymph node was removed and I found out that day. The official confermation came in two days later. I am in shock. I am afraid and my heart is breaking for my children. I will have a pet scan on Sunday and am afraid of the results and the treatment. I have already been told I will need Chemo once a week for six weeks and radiation five days a week for seven weeks. Should I get a second opinion or will I be wasting precious time?
