I really need advice and guidance from anyone who has or had tonsil cancer. I am 38 year female, never smoked, not HPV positive, and rarely drink...and I am currently 5 months pregnant.
I had my left tonsil removed last week after being inflammed and non responsive to antibiotics. Bioposy indicaticated Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Luckily enough it seems as though I caught it very early...stage 1.
I meet with the radiologist tomorrow and would like to know what I can expect, what questions I should ask? Are feeding tubes always necessary? Is it possible to work through radiation?
I feel so scared and alone...any help would be greatly appreciated
