Hi, my name is Debbie. My husband Jim waas diagnosed May 2011 with stage 4 base of tongue with mets to 2 lymph nodes. January of this year pronounced lymph and tongue clear but nodule in upper right lobe. Waited 3 months for a CT and the result was numerous nodes in both lungs. He can't handle chemo, the csplatin almost killed him. Next Monday he has another CT but we do not get the results unti,l the following Monday. My question is: anyone experience this fast growing of nodules? The pathologist could not deternmine if the cancer was mets from tongue or new cancer so they are assuminfg from tongue. I am afraid that sincee it went from one to numerous in 3 months that this is fast growing and multiplying which means short time. He has also started to lose weight again. Please help with any info you have.
