I want to thank everyone for all the nice replies from my previous post regarding my husband's Stage 4A tonsil cancer. I'm still new to all this and not quite sure what all of the technical terms are to what he has. He has a tumor on the left side and the cancer (SCC) is in his tonsils, HPV Negative. He has had the radiation mask made and we thought radiation would start next week. We are now being told that Induction Chemotherapy will be done first with an IV 24 hrs 4 or five days and 2 weeks off. Has anyone with this type of cancer had this done?
What a great group of people. I am so blessed to have the internet and support through the Cancer Survivors Network. I'm hoping my husband will be joining the group too.
