My husband was diagnosed stage 4 HNSCC. Left neck disection Surgery on April 30 , 2010 removed 22 lymph nodes 3 were positive. Unknown primary but the doctors are recommending full radiation 60 grays on right side and 70 grays on left side, 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Also, recommended Cisplatin 3 times OR Erbitux weekly. My husband is contemplating no further treatment unless a primary is identified. Would that be a mistake? Also, any thoughts on Erbitux vs. Cisplatin?
