In March I was diagonosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the hypopharyrnx. Looking up that cancer online the only thing I could find was prognosis was dismal. Never believe what you read. I went through 35 radiation treatments and 3 cistiplatin treatments. Today the doctor shoved that lovely device down my nose and said that is where it used to be. I didn’t even see scar tissue. I still have problems with thrush, a feeding tube, and swallowing is not a lot of fun. However, at 7 weeks the tumor is no longer there. I truly do not think I would of survived without this website.
