Well, I joyously posted on here back in November that my PET/CT scan was clean after surgery/rads for Parotid salivary gland cancer. Today, I met with my surgeon for a check up. I mentioned that I had been having some neck pain and I found a small lump around my jaw line. This made me a bit nervous. My surgeon said he doesn't know what the lump is, but he did not like the looks of it. So, now in two weeks, I go in to have this little lump removed to see what it is. I'm really scared, folks and I could sure use some support. I have had two surgeries, radioactive seed implantation, 30 rads to the neck, 6 months of facial palsy, and now this. I know that many of you have been through worse, but this is really beginning to wear me down.
