I have now been physically examined and scoped by my ENT, Radoncologist and surgeaon. None of them can see anything abnormal in my mouth, throat, tongue etc.however a small spot that came up hot on my PET has the tumor board concerned. They gave me a choice: 1) monitor the spot with another PET in 3 months or 2) biopsy now. Now here is the new wrinkle-because I hyave had radiation twice on both sides of my neck, they say there is a chance that there can be complications with the healing of the biopsy including infection, no healings etc. because of the ravaged condition of the tissue caused by the rads. I am 4 months post treatment and my throat is torn up now. What do you think---biopsy now or wait?
