I'm approaching a year since I was diagnosed with SCC unknown primary and had left neck dissection. Since then I have had checkups every six weeks where I get scoped and the awesome hand down my throat manuever.
A few days back I noticed a swollen lymph node in the back of my neck. It's the kind of thing I get from time to time but this one is a little bigger. It has been making me a bit anxious.
My next appt is scheduled for Monday and I can't wait for the exam so I can have it looked at and maybe get some answers. I've been NED every appt so far and I want to keep it going.
I never did get radiation and the hope is that the primary was fought off and is gone BUT the thought that the cancer is in there spreading about is always close by.
Keep me in you prayers and God bless!
