Has anyone experienced sudden swelling of the jaw after finishing up radiation and chemo for SCC of the neck? I read a little about infections in bone and salivary glands, but I'm a little worried about the suddeness of the whole thing and I know my dad is too! Dad looks like someone socked him in the jaw real good, it's not painful, just a huge hard lump.
Thankfully he sees the doctor tomorrow, and dad is excited to get his port and feeding tube out. Hopefully they can still proceed.
