I had a lump behind my ear and it was SCC from a skin cancer that
was not taken care of by my dermatologist. I had a fna, pet scan and
surgery to remove the lymph node attahed to the parotid that had the scc in it. Surgeon also
removed one more node that looked bad and a little section of skin where
it all started.
Surgeon has recommended radiation as a safty choice. set up with a radiation
doctor and has set me up for 30 treatments with a total of 60 Gy.
It seems that every one I talked to has the same amount of 60 regardless
of how much cancer in the parotid they had removed.
Just wonder if a person could not get by with less if it is a safty mode
of getting any missed cells.
